Seeing the world through someone else’s eyes can be a life-altering experience. Here at the Confucius Institute U.S. Center, we believe that a change in perspective can change the world.

We bridge cultural divides by providing opportunities to experience the world from one another’s point of view.

The Confucius Institute U.S. Center is a (501)(c)(3) nonprofit organization who promotes the value of Global education. We support the teaching and learning of Chinese language and culture in the United States and enable people-to-people exchanges, deepening cultural understanding and language development. We promote a nation-wide network of Confucius Institutes that provides educational and cultural programs to teach Mandarin, cultivate Chinese cultural awareness, and facilitate educational exchanges.

The world is a big place, and because of that we try to bring a little piece of China to everything we do.

Our Pillars

It is now more important than ever to understand the viewpoints and cultures of people from around the globe.  Our goal is to bridge the gap between the U.S. and China and allow people to exchange their culture, customs and history person to person.

Located in the heart of Washington DC, the CIUS Center hosts monthly events, seminars, and panel discussions all with the goal of bringing people together and providing them with a space to engage in cross-cultural exchange.  exchanges and create lifelong friendships.

We realized most people are unable to participate in the life-changing expecience of cultural exchange and study abroad programs.  This is why we try to extend opportunities to immerse oneself in another language and culture to those who may not have access to these programs be they life-long career professionals or students.

By elevating the stories and impact of Confucius Institutes across the country, we hope to amplify the unique voices of our students and help spread the value of global education beyond the boundaries of college campuses.
