Confucius Institute of the State of Washington

The Confucius Institute of the State of Washington (CIWA) was asked to create a brief documentary video on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of Confucius Institutes worldwide. It also coincided with CIWA’s 4th Anniversary on April 26, 2014. The video opens with greetings from President Michael Young from the University of Washington, Superintendent José Banda from Seattle Public Schools, and Deputy Superintendent Alan Burke. It highlights a brief history of CIWA, pathways for teachers, joining community, pathways for students, and sharing Chinese culture and strengthening China partnerships.
