Welcome to the Confucius Institute

We are a center within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Wayne State University whose mission is to provide and support Chinese language and cultural programs for K-12 schools, the university community, and professional communities in southeastern Michigan and beyond. Established in January 2008, the WSU-CI, with the support of Hanban: Chinese Language Council International, and Wayne State’s partnering Chinese institution, Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, provides a multitude of programs and resources that assist individuals and organizations in their pursuit of learning Mandarin Chinese and in learning about Chinese culture.
