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.

Interested in learning more about Chinese language and culture? Enroll in the UKCI's community courses today. Community courses offer affordable opportunities to further explore elements of Chinese language as well as martial arts, tai chi, art, and traditional musical instruments.
