ALBANY - Hundreds of Chinese students and faculty were brought to New York in 2008, following an earthquake in Sichuan Province. Now, there's a new place on campus to help bring more of that culture to campus.
The new Confucius Institute and Educational Center was inaugurated on Wednesday.
The center is affiliated with China's Ministry of Education and Office of Chinese Language Council.
It will provide classes on Chinese language, history and business.
UAlbany has 650 scholars and students from China.
