CONFUCIUS INSTITUTE

Kentucky’s Gateway to China

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 Institute serves as a conduit for many of UK’s China initiatives, facilitating a range of China exchange programs across the campus and beyond. The Institute also works to strengthen China studies at 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.

“The Tai Chi class was a great way to take a break from classes and work, and learn something fun and new. It is also more complicated than it looks, but by the end of the semester you’ll learn amazing Tai Chi with the help of your teacher and other students.”
