The CIE runs NTU’s Summer+ programs, designs tailored programs for overseas partners, develops a comprehensive selection of Chinese language and culture programs open to all international students, and works with colleges and departments to increase NTU's offering of English-language curricula.

THE LOGO OF THE OIA

The OIA logo is designed around the official school flower—the azalea blossom—with three bright-colored petals posting the three rising spirits: the wings of inspiration on the left, the island of Taiwan in the center, and the Chinese symbol for “people” on the right serving as the foundation of the logo. A blue arch, symbolizing the ocean surrounding Taiwan, extends from the flying wings to form a snappy perimeter, indicating OIA’s ambition to reach out in all directions.
