Chinese Heritage Language Education and Research Project (CHeLER) logoThe Chinese Heritage Language Education and Research Project (CHeLER) at the University of Toledo seeks to improve the teaching and learning of Chinese heritage language and culture in the United States by gathering and disseminating resources related to Chinese heritage education and information about community-based Chinese heritage programs to educators, parents, and the general public. Visit the CHeLER website.

The goals of the project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education (International Research and Studies Grant), are to provide information and resources to strengthen existing Chinese community-based schools and to encourage their development where they do not exist; encourage dialogue that results in resource sharing, research collaboration, and articulation between formal education systems and heritage community school systems; and inform policy makers, school administrators, teacher trainers, and parents seeking to use and develop the Chinese language as a national linguistic resource.
