Cross-cultural collaboration

Confucius Institutes were established in 2004 through an initiative of the Ministry of Education in China. Currently, there are 97 Confucius Institutes in the US and over 475 globally in 187 countries around the world. The goal of Confucius Institutes is promote Chinese language and culture and an understanding of China globally. Confucius Institutes have the opportunity to establish their own priorities and strategic planning that varies from environmental focus to business partnerships.

The SCSU Confucius Institute is focused on the development and sustainability of Chinese Immersion programs in the state of MN and promoting new Chinese language programs around Central and out state MN. The SCSU Confucius Institute partner with National Hanban, the organization within the Ministry of Education that manages Confucius Institutes, on opportunities for community members, students, faculty and staff to learn about China, travel to China and learn Chinese.
