The Beijing Sea-Dream Art Troupe visited Cleveland State to give a wonderful display of Chinese ethnic art forms including music, dance, theater, and more.
Every year, we plant trees in honor of teachers, and host a one-day event at CSU to celebrate the success of our teachers and the achievements of local students.
The ceremonies this year included student performances celebrating Chinese art, culture, and language, as well as an awards ceremony recognizing educators for their contributions to an engaged, multicultural learning environment. Of special note among our honorees this year were Dr. Mark Freeman, retiring Superintendant of the Shaker Heights School District, and Dr. James McLoughlin, the previous Dean of the College of Education and Human Services at Cleveland State University.
Student groups in attendance came from Chinese Language curricula and programs from around greater Cleveland area, including groups representing eighteen schools from seven school districts.

The Confucius Institute presents a Chinese dance and music program that features a wide spectrum of Chinese dance forms from several different ethnic groups. The guest performers visited CSU from South-Central University for Nationalities (SCUN) in Wuhan, China, and proceeds from this event are being utilized for disaster relief following the April 20th earthquake in Sichuan Province.
Confucius Institute at Cleveland State University has been very active in collaborating with Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA), Chinese American Faculty and Staff Association (CAFSA), and Chinese Professional Entrepreneur and Association (CPEA) for Chinese New Year Celebration. What’s more, the Confucius Institute also successfully hosted the Dumpling Festival at Campus International School (CIS) and sponsored Cleveland Contemporary Chinese Culture Association (CCCCA) and Westlake Chinese Culture Association (WCCA) for the Chinese New Year Celebration. We can see the Confucius Institute makes a great effort to spread out Chinese culture and impact local communities.
