Confucius Institute

Center for International Education


The Confucius Institute at UT was established with the support of Hanban in Beijing, China, and Southeast University in Nanjing, China. The institute offers Chinese programs both on and off campus. Our mission is to enhance the learning of Chinese language and culture in our region by offering Chinese language and cultural classes, holding events and activities, and providing services to UT and local community. We work with other Confucius Institutes to bridge Chinese and US cultures through our joint efforts.
