2017 China Trip Opportunity for Kansas K-12 Educators
The Kansas State University Confucius Institute is pleased to sponsor a summer trip to China for K-12 superintendents, principals, and other Kansas school administrators from May 29th to June 9th, 2017. The purpose of the trip is to provide leaders in K-12 education an opportunity to learn about the Chinese education system and culture and to share their experiences with their Chinese counterparts. Participants will visit a number of Chinese K-12 schools and universities in both the Chinese capital of Beijing and Changchun (a major city in Northeast China) as well as tourist attractions in both cities. The Confucius Institute’s Chinese partner Jilin University in Changchun will make local arrangements.
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.
