Global Audience Meets CIU Leader

CIU Executive Director Rick Van Sant is still unpacking boxes after his move to N.C. from Abu Dhabi, but that didn’t stop him from boarding a plane to Beijing his second day on the job!

Invited to the 9th Confucius Institute Conference, Rick presented to the Director’s Forum on Confucius Classrooms in North Carolina. It was a great opportunity to update colleagues from around the world about CIU’s 42 Confucius Classrooms throughout North Carolina, introducing Chinese culture and language to some 8,000+ students in grades K-12.
