"OIP is excited that the K-State Confucius Institute was asked to also be engaged in welcoming the South China Normal University delegation to our campus," said Grant Chapman, interim associate provost for the Office of International Programs. "The K-State Confucius Institute is a valuable resource for our university and this is great opportunity for their staff to accommodate this visit."
The delegation will stay in the Manhattan area for three days spending time in classrooms in the community and on campus, meeting with faculty and staff and visiting area regional attractions to gain a greater sense of what early childhood educators and young children and students experience in our region.
