The ASU Chinese Language Flagship Center proposes to build upon the existing program which began in 2007. This Center, which is committed to preparing ASU students to respond to the changing linguistic and cultural needs of society, will promote an interdisciplinary and innovative curriculum that builds upon best practices of its success in leveraging existing ASU resources and creating new language training opportunities. The Center will increase the overall number of Flagship certified undergraduate students in Chinese through 2015 by enrolling them in one to three years of domestic study in which they complete Flagship content courses and related coursework and one year of overseas study where they will directly enroll at Nanjing University, and subsequently complete an internship in their primary field of study. This program will emphasize the following elements: 1) focus on outcomes, with emphasis on student tracking and assessment data; 2) innovative course design and delivery, including online instruction; 3) longitudinal objectives, beginning with pre- collegiate students; 4) instructor training and collaboration, both within Flagship and throughout ASU; 5) individuated instruction and advising to ensure student success. The program sets the goal of superior level proficiency (ILR3) as identified by the National Security Education Program (NSEP).
