The GW Confucius Institute was established in 2013 to promote the study of Chinese language and culture,  support Chinese teaching through instructional training and certification, and encourage increased research in China studies. Named for the famed Chinese philosopher (551-479 B.C.), GW's Confucius Institute is one of 430 across the world and the first in Washington, D.C. GW President Steven Knapp serves on the Council of the Confucius Institute Headquarters, the governing body of institutes worldwide.
