The CI at WKU engages in outreach to local educational institutions through partnerships with Hanban and local schools to sponsor Chinese teachers in area K-12 schools. Additionally, the CI offers cultural programming, K-12 summer programs, teacher training and certification, professional development, and language proficiency exams.

Our Hanban teachers are graduates of various universities in China and are teaching in schools throughout the Western Kentucky region. If your school is interested in hosting a Hanban teacher, please contact Chunmei Guan, Assistant Director for Educational Outreach, at 270-745-2836 or atchunmei.guan@wku.edu.
