Confucius Institute

Confucius Institute changes

Kansas State University Confucius Institute, which launched April 2015, provided non-credit bearing Chinese language instruction and cultural education outreach to schools, businesses and coordinated cultural events for the public.

Kansas State University (K-State) has decided not to renew the contract with the Confucius Institute as of June 2019. The decision to move forward without a Confucius Institute does not reflect an end to our engagement and mutually beneficial partnerships with China and other parts of the world.

The University continues academic programs and courses about China included Chinese language courses. These academic courses and programs were offered before 2015 and the opening of the Confucius Institute.

The dedicated work of the Confucius Institute staff and Director, Max Lu, is greatly appreciated. Please direct any questions to:
