The purpose of this study is to explore the development of the university-affiliated Chinese language center, the Chinese Language Center of Tzu Chi University in Hualien targeted as the example. Quality research was adopted as an approach to grasp in-depth understanding of this research field. Data were collected from the center during a three-month field survey. Next, interviews, questionnaires, and historical literature were conducted and analyzed so as to comprehensively understand the development of this Chinese language center and the eastern region of Taiwan. The features of the center affiliated with Tzu Chi University can be analyzed from three dimensions: (1) the center is affiliated with a private university; (2) the center is located in the eastern Taiwan; (3) its affiliation is based on a Buddhist university. The Chinese Language Center of Tzu Chi University was established in 2003. It is not only the first Chinese language teaching institution in the eastern region, but also the first institution in the east to have passed the evaluation by the Ministry of Education and to recruit overseas students. The center was selected as the target of research to fulfill the research aim of investigating how to develop and sustain a Chinese teaching institute with diverse features. This study is to understand a relatively diverse Chinese language teaching institution. How to develop and develop its own characteristics. The current research selected the Chinese Language Center of Tzu Chi University in eastern Taiwan as the main research target to collect field survey experiences, first-hand documents and various types of written materials. The history recording the establishment of the research center, organizational structure, administrative hierarchy, Chinese language teaching, Teacher training and methods of integrating religious beliefs into Chinese language teaching were observed and studied. The study found that because it is attached to Tzu Chi Buddhist University, the founding philosophy was also demonstrated in this center, including eating habits, training of humanistic spirits, and participation in various activities organized by Tzu Chi. Also, the work-learning administrative staff, teachers, and students recognize the identity of the “family”. However, the difficulties faced by the Tzu Chi Chinese Language Center are the high employee turnover, the low enrollment rate, and the inaccessibility of transportation. It is hoped that the difficulties faced by the alliance can be solved through cooperation of different industries, collaboration of different Chinese language centers, and support from the Tzu Chi Foundation.
