Uni of Central Florida mulls partnership or campus in Hainan
The University of Central Florida said this week it is discussions with the Chinese government about a partnership and possibly a campus in the southern province of Hainan.
Chinese officials have expressed interest in establishing a program similar to UCF’s Rosen College of Hospitality Management to help foster growth in the tourism and hospitality industries of Hainan Island.
It’s not yet known whether UCF would open a campus to serve Chinese students or if UCF simply will assist the Chinese government with the development of its own program.
If UCF opens a campus in China, it would be the university’s first international campus. UCF, however, does already partner with other institutions to offer study-abroad programs in numerous other countries, including Australia, Honduras and Sweden.
Rosen College students can spend a spring semester in China through a partnership with Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Rosen College also has been offering its expertise to the South African city of Mbombela. It recently agreed to help with the planning of a convention center and tourist attraction there.
