WVU Portal China

WVU has a longstanding relationship with China, working closely for decades on research, student mobility, and program development.

WVU's Global Portal in China  is slated to launch in the summer of 2018. WVU has recognized our strong alumni presence in the region, committed partnerships, history of productive education abroad programs, and vast research collaboration potential makes China an obvious choice as a location for a Global Portal. 


One of WVU's strongest collaborations in China focuses on energy production and sustainability. With the US-China Energy Center, hosted in the NRCCE, WVU has developed strategic partnerships with industries and universities to promote academic and research collaborations. 


One of WVU's strongest partnerships in China is with our Center for Chinese Business (CCB) in the College of Business & Economics. With longstanding professional development programs, the CCB has an extensive network of professionals and industries in the region. The CCB has also developed a strong network of partner universities in China, developing academic partnerships for collaborative academic programs, and student mobility opportunities. 

Additionally, the College of Business & Economics hosts WVU's Confucius Institute, helping to promote Chinese culture, history, and language in West Virginia. 


WVU maintains a chapter of our Alumni Association in Shanghai, China. The Shanghai location connects hundreds of WVU's alumni in China and is highly active in organizing events and promoting WVU in the region.
