Confucius Institute at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Welcome to the Confucius Institute at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (CI-UHM), a joint effort of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU). The CI-UHM is supported by major funding from Hanban (the Chinese Language Council International—Confucius Institute Headquarters), and is staffed by UHM faculty as well as BFSU faculty and students in residence at UH each year. It is run as a program of UHM’s Center for Chinese Studies (CCS), whose offices are on the fourth floor of Moore Hall. Both CCS and the CI-UHM have, as their core mission, the promotion of all aspects of Chinese language and area studies, through instruction, research, publication, materials development, and outreach.

The CI-UHM comprises a number of offices and classrooms on the first floor, makai side, of Moore Hall that were renovated through a $1 million grant from Hanban and are available to other UHM units or community groups, as follows:
