With assistance from Ohio State’s China Gateway office and the China Travel Guide, visits to China can be made easy for members of the Ohio State community traveling on university business. The China Travel Guide serves as an information toolkit for faculty and staff to better understand the international travel process, learn about the local culture and obtain the most out of a business trip to China. The guide provides information about arrangements for pre-departure and post-arrival, how to select the appropriate visa and insight into the local Chinese culture. Learn more about the China Gateway and how it can facilitate focused networking, targeted recruitment and support for scholarly work abroad.

Five of Ohio State’s international programs have been awarded more than $6.3 million in U.S. Department of Education funding for the next four years. These awards make Ohio State one of the few universities in the nation to receive federal funding to support multiple disciplines.

The Area Studies Centers, affiliated with the Office of International Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences, have been awarded $4.1 million in Title VI National Resource Center funding and Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship grants. The East Asian Studies Center and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies have received funding for the 2014 - 2018 award period. The grants will be used by the Area Studies Centers to sponsor a wide range of academic activities, provide resources that stimulate new research opportunities and expand instructional initiatives, and conduct outreach activities.


Ohio State’s Office of International Programs in Agriculture, working in cooperation with China’s Ministry of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service recently welcomed six visitors to Ohio State as part of the U.S. government’s U.S. – China Scientific Cooperative Exchange Program. The program encourages long-term cooperation in agricultural science and technology and creates a positive atmosphere for agricultural trade between the two countries.

This visit came just a few weeks following the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences extension team’s visit to China to exchange knowledge and best practices on urban agriculture. Six faculty and program educators made up Ohio State’s extension team that met with faculty and students from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Henan Agricultural University and China Agricultural University to explore how China is transforming its urban food systems.

The extension teams from both Ohio State and China’s Ministry of Agriculture gained invaluable insight on each other’s agricultural systems and will continue to work together to build on this mutually beneficial partnership.
