2014 Confucius Institute of the Year

2014 Confucius Institute of the Year award ceremonyAs we ring in the new year and wrap up 2014, we have good news to share. The Confucius Institute at the University of Minnesota was awarded the “Confucius Institute of the Year” for 2014 during the 9th Confucius Institute Conference in Xiamen! This wouldn’t have been possible without all the support of our partners, community members and teachers who all contribute to our work. Thank you!

The good news doesn’t stop with just one award. Confucius Classroom Yinghua Academy was awarded the 2014 “Confucius Institute Classroom of the Year.” Sue Berg, CEO/Executive Director of Yinghua Academy, attended the conference and accepted the award on behalf of Yinghua Academy. Congratulations to Yinghua Academy! What a great way to end the year here at the Confucius Institute. See Sue Berg’s interview on CCTV.
