Our blog is written by people throughout the Hospitality Center for Chinese (HCC) family. It is meant to unite the many students, scholars, volunteers, donors, and staff of HCC through the sharing of ideas and experiences.

We would be enthralled if you joined us in writing this blog! If you are interested in writing a blog post for us, please see our Blog Styles Guide 2017 for topic ideas and guidelines. When you create your blog, send it to hannah@hcchinese.org for editing and posting.

HCC is a faith-based nonprofit organization located on the University of Minnesota Campus in St. Paul, Minnesota. The mission of HCC is to share Christ’s love through hospitality to Chinese students, scholars, and their families. For more information, visit our website: http://hcchinese.org/

Note that because our blog is written by so many people, Hospitality Center for Chinese as an organization does not stand behind any particular ideology in a post. We stand firmly behind the Bible and the ideology of multicultural unity. Besides that, our HCC family has many different opinions, and this is simply a place to express those opinions and ideas.
