The Confucius Institute at Wayne State is committed to establishing and supporting a strong foundation for Chinese language and cultural education in Michigan, especially in the Greater Detroit area. Among its primary initiatives has been to establish a professional organization for Chinese language educators in the state. The resulting organization, known as the Chinese Language Association of Michigan, or CLAM, will bring together educators of Chinese to share teaching ideas at levels K-16. CLAM will offer an annual conference, a Web site, and sponsor two annual China Quiz Bowls--one at the K-12 level and another at the college level. First year membership to CLAM is free simply by registering for the annual conference.
Wayne State University is a premier institution of higher education offering more than 350 academic programs through 12 schools and colleges to more than 31,000 students.
