Shen is also the founder and director of China’s first non-government-based Program on Arms Control and Regional Security at Fudan University.

Sponsored by the McDonnell International Scholars Academy, the Cabot Corporation-Xinsheng Zhang Lectureship Series was created in 2011. It offers the university community opportunities to learn about issues of global leadership, particularly in China.

The series was made possible by a gift from the Cabot Corp., honoring the leadership of Zhang, who left the company after 17 years to join Shell Aviation.
