Confucius Institute publishes 2016 prospectus

The University at Buffalo Confucius Institute (UBCI) has published its 2016 Prospectus. The document outlines 2016 programs in UBCI’s three major areas of work: (1) as an educational resource center to help Western NY K-12 schools and UB develop Chinese language programs; (2) as a community cultural center to foster a better understanding of Chinese cultural traditions and contemporary China; and (3) as a de facto center for China Studies at UB to develop and support academic research and artistic production on campus.

In addition to ongoing programs like the K-12 guest teacher program, Chinese New Year and Moon Festival celebrations, and the Distinguished Lecture Series, in 2016 UBCI is supporting and organizing, for example:

  • A “Chinese Bridge” study tour for local school administrators and teachers
  • academic symposia in contemporary Chinese art, Chinese views of the global order, and urban planning
  • A residency by HT Chen & Dancers at Nichols School, culminating in a public performance of “South of Gold Mountain” at Nichols School on March 12
  • A roundtable on U.S.-China economic relations
  • A symposium on the UB-China Academic Relationship in Honor of UB Vice Provost for International Education and UBCI Board Co-chair Stephen C. Dunnett

This is just a sample of UBCI’s activity in 2016. Please read the prospectus and look through the website to find out more.
