About the Confucius Institute

“The Confucius Institute at Alfred University (CIAU) was established in 2008 with the support of the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban). It is part of an international network of Confucius Institutes dedicated to promoting the study of Chinese language, culture, ethics, and philosophy, and furthers the understanding of China today.

CIAU is affiliated directly under the Provost’s Office at Alfred University. It is an educational resource for teachers, parents, and students throughout western New York. In addition to being a full professional development and workshop center, CIAU has a resource library with more than 3,000 print and media materials for educators and students.”
