The University of Oregon Confucius Institute for Global China Studies was initiated by the University of Oregon Office of International Affairs in 2009 as part of a growing national and international trend to expand educational ties with China and to further intercultural understanding. It was inaugurated in fall 2010. The institute is made possible with the support of our partners in China: The Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), and East China Normal University in Shanghai. Recognizing China’s cultural, educational, economic, environmental, political and technological role in the world, the UO Confucius Institute highlights activities related to four themes:


Chinese culture across borders
China futures/global futures
Chinese culture on a world stage
China and global sustainability
