    • Academic support to the USF Chinese language program and other related disciplines;
    • Community engagement in Tampa Bay to promote cross-cultural understanding through cultural performance and CI Lectures;
    • Outreach to K-12 schools to improve and expand Chinese language programs; and
    • Help to create a statewide network on educational initiatives related to Chinese language, tourism, trade, and sustainable healthy communities.
