In 2016, twelve years after the first Confucius Institute was established in the United States, the CIUS Center hosted the inaugural Confucius Institute National Honors Gala, recognizing ten outstanding CI students from around the country with the CIUS People-to-People Award. The award is presented to select CI students for their enthusiasm and efforts in learning the Chinese language and developing an understanding of Chinese culture.
This year’s Gala is more important than ever before. One of the many goals for this year’s program is to highlight the importance of hosting Confucius Institutes in the United States, and as we continue to ‘Push Forward’, the Gala is an opportunity to thank our dedicated supporters and encourage attendees to never stop believing in the power of global education!
Join us for the 2019 Confucius Institute U.S. Center National Honors Gala on September 14th.
Details on special guest speakers and performances are coming soon!
