The College Board is pleased to announce the 2013 Chinese Bridge Delegation, a weeklong program in China to help educators start or strengthen their institution's Chinese programs and partnerships. Highlights include school visits, cultural activities and educational workshops. Leaders from K-12 and higher education institutions are invited to apply for this unique educational trip to China as guests of Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban).
The delegation provides an opportunity to:
Visit Chinese K-12 schools and postsecondary institutions, meet with Chinese educators, observe classes and interact with students
Establish meaningful partnerships with Chinese education institutions and network with U.S. colleagues
Attend presentations on best practices and gather resources to build and support Chinese language and culture programs
Experience China firsthand and marvel at the rich traditional culture set against stunning modern development
Dates: November 6–14, 2013
Selection priority will be given to:

Selected participants are expected to be actively involved in, and able to speak about, their institution's efforts to build or expand a Chinese language and culture program.
