Confucius Institute at Stanford University focuses on research and teaching Chinese language and culture. Chinese has become the second most popular foreign language at Stanford University. This is evidence of a growing interest among students in Chinese language and culture. To encourage research on the graduate level, each year the Institute will award a fellowship to one to three graduate students currently enrolled in their Chinese program.
The Confucius Institute at Stanford University is a partnership between Stanford, Peking University, one of China’s top research universities, and Hanban, an administrative arm of the Ministry of Education in China.

One Hundred Years of Transformation in China: 1911-1981-2011
By Dr. Vincent Yip
On 10/10/1911, Chinese revolutionaries in Wuchang ignited an uprising that ended China’s 5000 years of feudal and dynastic rule, and heralded a Chinese Republic. However, much more turmoil and suffering ensued until 1949 when the PRC was founded, and even beyond. This presentation will examine the history, culture, and psyche that laid the foundation for today’s China. Dr. yip is also an indefatigable traveler and photographer. He will share his images and experiences inside China the past three decades, during which China went from a Third World weakling to a First World Power to be reckoned with.
Dr. Vincent Yip is a Bay Area management consultant whose career included diplomatic service to the European Union and teaching at the Northwestern, USF Business Schools, and has been lecturing at Stanford Continuing Studies since 2008. He has traveled in China on consulting assignments for UN, World Bank, and several international corporations, and in 1994 he founded a Sino-Malaysian joint venture environmental technology ECOFEN in Beijing and served as its general manager. He is the author of three books on China and also published numerous articles in technical as well as business journals, mainly on cultural, e-commerce, project management and other related aspects of doing business in China. Dr.Yip holds a PhD from U.of Southern California.
