Operating since 2010, the China Gateway serves as a liaison office for Ohio State to facilitate research collaborations and reconnect with our growing alumni base in the region. Alumni, friends, and community and business leaders, gathered to celebrate the new office space designed by Ohio State alum, Frank Ma. ‪

Ohio State currently has 3,600 students from China enrolled, 46 international agreements with universities in China and 16 study abroad/student exchange programs in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
