Come out and enjoy learning about Chinese language and culture this spring with WMCI's Spring 2017 events and courses! Chinese cooking, poetry, language, and more will be offered! This spring WMCI will host the Spring Festival celebration, welcome renowned UC San Diego Professor Barry Naughton for a distinguished scholar lecture, and hold World Taiji and Qigong Day, where visitors can experience martial arts firsthand. 

The William & Mary Confucius Institute (WMCI) is charged with promoting the study of Chinese language and culture at the College and in the Central and Southeastern regions of Virginia. The WMCI was established in 2011 and dedicated in 2012, joining a network of over 300 Confucius Institutes worldwide. It is the second Confucius Institute at a public university in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The WMCI is a collaborative program in partnership with Beijing Normal University (BNU) and the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), a public institution affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education.
