    Introduce

    1. Introduced our campus to visitors.
    2. Introduced visitors to our campus.


    I have difficulty in understanding these two phrases.

    Yes, or I want to introduce you to B.

    If A and B are people, you introduce A to B and you introduce B to A.

    Your original example is a bit different because "our campus" is not a person.

    So, if I want visitors to know more about our campus, can I say "I want to introduce our campus to visitors"?

    Re: Introduce

    That's not very natural.

    I want to tell our visitors more about the campus.
    I want to show our visitors around the campus.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
