This proposal to the president addresses the need for Otterbein University to establish robust collaborations with Chinese universities to foster financial stability and enhance its global presence.

This proposal outlines five primary strategies for partnering with Chinese universities: student recruitment, student exchanges, faculty exchanges, study abroad programs, and joint degree programs. Each method offers distinct benefits and requires varying levels of commitment, offering Otterbein the flexibility to tailor its engagement with Chinese institutions.

The document also underscores existing relationships with prominent Chinese institutions established through prior visits by Otterbein staff, creating a solid foundation for further collaboration.
