We are teachers and students eager to learn about and promote China’s culture and language. Located in the heart of Jersey City, close to the financial district and New York’s Wall Street, the Confucius Institute at New Jersey City University is also at the heart of where East meets West. Our mission is to educate and engage anyone already in or are coming to our community in Mandarin and Chinese culture. Our knowledgeable staff either hailing from China or having studied Mandarin for a long time are passionate about bringing a far-away culture to right here in Jersey City. Since our world is globalizing, China has changed its foreign policy to be more open economically and socially with foreign countries. More businesses and people from China have been flocking to Jersey City to see the sites and learn about the United States, and the Institute wishes to be part of that meeting.
