CSU's new Confucius Institute
Dr. Wei Gao, ESS Professor and Confucius Institute Director, participated in the dedication of CSU’s Confucius Institute on Friday, April 12th, 2013. Joining Dr. Gao were CSU System Chancellor Michael Martin, President Tony Frank, Provost Rick Miranda, Vice Provost for International Affairs Jim Cooney, and ESS Department Head John Moore to welcome distinguished guest Vice Minister Xu Lin at the dedication ceremony and reception.
Lin is the director of more than 400 Confucius Institutes world-wide and is a member of the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), a non-profit organization affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education.
“The Confucius Institute will help the local population – our students and the community at large – have a better understanding of Chinese language and culture,” Cooney said. “It will be an outstanding addition to Fort Collins and Colorado.”
According to Dr. Gao, CSU’s Confucius Institute is also designed to promote collaboration between CSU and Chinese universities on water and environmental sciences. Together, Dr. Gao and Dr. John Moore have visited China several times to form partnerships with Chinese high schools and universities as well as to recruit international students.
The new institute is located on the southeast side of campus on College Avenue.
