Chinese New Year - Confucius Institute at CSU

Chinese New Year
Confucius Institute at Cleveland State University
February 4, 2017

Sponsored by the Office of Chinese Language International Council (Hanban), the Confucius Institute at Cleveland State University was established in August 2008.

CSU Confucius Institute


Hanban is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization in China. The Confucius Institute helps to better prepare CSU students, Northeast Ohio K-12 school students, and members of the community at large in terms of learning Chinese language and developing an understanding of China's arts and culture. It also serves as a bridge to connect Cleveland State University and local business community to related Chinese institutions for academic and business cooperation.

The Confucius Institute hosted a celebration of Chinese New Year on Saturday February 4, 2017.
