Spring 2015 at William & Mary Confucius Institute

Spring is an exciting time for WMCI as we team up with the Chinese student organizations to celebrate the Spring Festival, as well as prepare for our own China Nights spotlighting the Lantern Festival and Impressions of Beijing. We are excited to host numerous events from a poetry reading to a lecture by an esteemed Harvard professor, in addition to offering a range of classes on everything from Chinese language to Chinese cooking, art, and even history. Lastly, don't miss out on World Taiji and Qigong day toward the end of the semester, a chance to view and participate in demonstrations of China's ancient and therapeutic martial arts practices.

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.
