The Miami-China Connection: Enhancing Chinese Cultural Studies at Florida International University and Miami-Dade College

The development of a full-time instructorship in Chinese language and culture for Florida International University and an aligned adjunct instructorship to teach beginning Chinese language courses at Miami-Dade Community College.

Florida International University and Miami Dade College, the largest Hispanic-serving institutions in the nation, request a grant of $140,935 for a two-year project (Aug. 2006-May 2008) to enhance Chinese language/cultural studies in Miami. The overriding goal of Miami-China Connection is to create a full-time instructorship position in Chinese cultural studies to be made permanent by FIU following the grant cycle. The instructor will have responsibilities for creating courses on Chinese language and culture, organizing cultural activities, and helping coordinate study abroad programs. Another main component of the new position will be to help a qualified adjunct instructor develop Chinese I and II at MDC and organize joint cultural events.
