Academic Information

Office of International Affairs

Lastest release date: Sep 15, 2011

Since the founding of Chinese Culture University (CCU) in 1962, its founder Dr. Chang Chi-Yun had laid profound importance on international academic relations. Following this mandate, CCU’s Chairman Dr. Chang Jen-Hu also strived for enhancing worldwide academic exchange since taking office in 1984. On his initiative and followed-up by the successive presidents, CCU established the International Academic Corporation Section in 1994, which subordinated to the Department of Academic Affairs. This institution promoted advanced international research programs, e.g. by arranging its study abroad system for CCU students. Here, students were not only encouraged to improve their foreign language skills but to deepen their international experience, especially with regard to cross-cultural understanding, thus enabling future intellectual elites to grasp outstanding global perspectives.

In recent years, the number of CCU’s international exchange programs has increased significantly, with contents varying greatly within the academic and administrative units. Due to this growing success, our university decided to efficiently integrate resources and set up a new specialized office for international affairs: in 2008, the Center for International Exchange (CIE) was established, composed of the International Programs Section and the International Students Section. The former International Academic Cooperation Section (subordinated to the Department of Academic Affairs), and the International Students Affairs Section (subordinated to the Department of Student Affairs) were merged in CIE. It aims at expanding international collaboration and attracting international students seeking for outstanding degrees, making their choice for CCU as their ideal destination. CIE manages CCU’s international affairs and assists all academic and administrative units of the university in organizing international activities, foreign students and scholars are offered adequate consulting service. CIE’s overall goal is to upgrade campus internationalization, thereby strengthening the university’s global competitiveness and popularity, and make CCU a worldwide esteemed academic institution.

The Center for International Exchange is located on the second floor of Fei-Hua Building. Within its office space, meeting rooms and discussion areas, a comfortable exchange and learning environment is given. Foreign students benefit from enhanced service quality, and visiting scholars enjoy a modern meeting location. CIE will intensify future international collaboration and set new standards in CCU’s international exchange, evoking positive feedback for CCU’s academicians, students, and staff.
