Webster's CI Named "2014 Confucius Institute of the Year"

Our Confucius Institute at Webster University was chosen from among 500 CIs across the globe as "2014 Confucius Institute of the Year"!  CI Director Dr. Deborah Pierce traveled to China in December to accept the award on behalf of all the staff, volunteer teachers, and visiting scholars and professors who made this possible. Their dedication, enthusiasm, and hard work continue to bring Chinese culture and language to our community in beautiful and engaging ways!
