The history of Rutgers School of Public Affairs and Administration's efforts in building collaborations with China began in the late 1990s, when Professor Marc Holzer, the founding Dean of the School, was invited by the Chinese Society for Public Administration, Peking University, and People's University of China to give presentations in Beijing. Since then, the cooperation between China and SPAA has been increasingly strengthened as the field of public administration is rapidly developing in both China and the United States. SPAA is currently engaged in several initiatives and programs that support the development of public administration in China. Below are the major ongoing projects related to China.
The Section on Chinese Public Administration (SCPA)
Rutgers SPAA is the Secretariat of the American Society for Public Administration Memorandum of Understanding with the Chinese Public Administration Society. SPAA is also the home to and manages the Chinese Public Administration Section of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA). SCPA was established in April 2006 with the approval of ASPA's National Council. It consists of scholars and practitioners from the U.S., China and other countries. It is the largest professional and scholarly organization in the field of Chinese public administration and public affairs in the U.S.. SCPA collaborates closely with the Chinese Public Administration Society and facilitates cooperation with the schools of public affairs and administration in China and their counterparts in the U.S.
Chinese Public Administration Review (CPAR)
Rutgers SPAA founded the journal, Chinese Public Administration Review, which is the first international journal specifically addressing the issues of Chinese public administration. It is the official journal of the Section on Chinese Public Administration of ASPA. Sponsored by the Research Center of Public Administration of Zhongshan University, SPAPP of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, School of Administration of Jilin University, MPA Center of Xi'an Jiaotong University and Rutgers School of Public Affairs and Administration, CPAR covers administrative reform and law, public policy, productivity improvement, civil service and many other topics. There are 12 issues in print. Dean Marc Holzer is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal.

Rutgers SPAA has also translated over 60 American books in public administration into Chinese and provided other books in public administration that are published in Chinese. This includes Public Management & Administration Illustrated Vol. III: Chinese (A Volume in a Multi-Lingual Collection of Diagrams).
Sino-U.S. International Conference on Public Administration
Rutgers SPAA initiated the Sino-U.S. Conference on Public Administration in June 2002. The Conference is held every other year. The first three conferences took place at People's University of China, the 2008 conference at Rutgers-Newark campus, and the 2010 conference at Xiamen University. SPAA publishes proceedings of past conferences.

In addition, Rutgers SPAA has facilitated over 20 other professional conferences in China.
Rutgers SPAA has established student exchange programs with People's University of China, accepting a small number of students from China to spend a year of their graduate life at Rutgers–Newark. The School has such an agreement with People's University of China, and is currently in discussions with several other universities in Beijing and Shanghai for this type of program. The School has established regular contact and dialogue with Chinese Public Administration community to explore possibilities of further cooperation. In addition, a Beijing-based international MPA program on government reform in the context of the global economic crisis is under discussion.
SPAA faculty whose research efforts are involved in China-related issues include Marc Holzer, Robert Shick, Qiushi Wang, Yahong Zhang, and some others.
