Each academic year since 2003, Reinhardt has designated a region of the world for students to learn more about through in-depth study and hands-on interaction. This focus is intended to promote understanding of varied cultures, businesses, histories, geographies and faiths and to help internationalize the Reinhardt experience.
The 2012-13 year is the Year of China: Dragon Rising. Students will delve into the rich history of China and how it impacts our business, literature, culture, art, music, and heritage. Events will be scheduled throughout the academic year and include lectures, music, a film-and-discussion series, a travel tour, and many others.
Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and culture of China. The Year of China festival was a great introduction to Chinese culture with workshops by the Atlanta Chinese Dance Company and the Shaolin Center demonstrating their skill and artistry through dance, Tai Chi and Kung Fu. The Confucius Institute was also at Reinhardt hosting workshops on Chinese Tea and sessions on calligraphy using rice paper, brushes and ink.
The Confucius Institute in Atlanta was the first in the State of Georgia, and Emory University was the first private university and the first among top Research I universities in the United States to enter into an agreement to establish a Confucius Institute on its campus in 2008.
