YSU alumni in Shanghai need the association to support each other and co-develop. Secondly, the association needs to lead Shanghai alumni, especially young alumni to contribute to Shanghai development in terms of economy, society, culture and environment, revealing the pioneer spirit of YSU. Thirdly, the association needs to serve and keep contact with YSU. Alumni are like the name cards of YSU, while YSU is the sign for all alumni. YSU will continue the all-round alumni development pattern, which is “YSU making overall arrangements, departments coordinating with each parts, schools combining with each other, local alumni associations interacting with each other, and faculty and student body participating in the process”. YSU will work hard to build a network for alumni and make full of the internet to invigorate the alumni work.
