Central to the work of the Confucius Institute at CSU is the preparation of teachers of Chinese for public and private schools, colleges and other organizations and assisting them to be successful on the job. The Institute coordinates short and extended exchanges of faculty, teachers, and students from both China and Ohio to pursue degrees and have enriching experiences through a network of Chinese universities and school systems.
In cooperation with the Nance School of Business Administration at CSU, the Institute offers professional development and technical assistance to Ohio companies doing business in China and assists Chinese businesses interested in relocating to Ohio. The Capital University in Beijing collaborates with the Institute in offering workshops to prepare Ohioans in Chinese language, culture, business practices, and other topics.
