Established in 2010, the Confucius Institute at the University of Kentucky is a center for Chinese language, culture, art and business. A gateway to China for the university and the Commonwealth, the Confucius Institute serves as the conduit for UK’s China initiatives, facilitating a range of China exchange programs across the campus and beyond. In addition, the Institute works to strengthen China Studies within the university, while at the same time providing leadership and support for Chinese language programs in Kentucky’s K-12 classrooms, and forging important community relationships through Chinese cultural outreach to people in the Commonwealth.
