In the recent years, Renmin University has set a new periodical target of enhancing her internationality in a comprehensive pattern to expand global influence and achieve the target of “taking-off in a decade”. Great importance has been attached to enhancing her internationality in various aspects of the university. Accordingly, a number of measures have been taken to realize this target.
