Confucius Institute

K-State launched its Confucius Institute in April 2015 in partnership with China's Jilin University and Hanban (Confucius Institute Headquarters).  The CI's mission is to promote, enhance and elevate understanding of the Chinese language and culture and to create exchanges between U.S. and Chinese academic institutions and communities. To that end, we 

  • offer practical and fun Chinese classes for both adults and children, including parent & child classes
  • organize a wide variety of cultural activities, such as cultural performances, Chinese cooking workshops, and the annual Chinese Culture Fair
  • sponsor academic and cultural exchange programs
  • provide information and consultative services related to China's culture, economy and businesses.

To see the various events CI sponsors throughout a year, please check Events.
