After a decade of dedicated and exciting work at USF and in the west Florida communities, the USF Confucius Institute (CI) will close on December 31, 2018.

It has been a privilege to partner with Qingdao University and to extend the understanding of Chinese language at USF and across Tampa Bay and Florida. The CI leaves a legacy of collaborations across USF, the K-12 education and community organizations and we know that the CI will be fondly remembered by the many thousands of Floridians who enjoyed the events and activities of the Center.

The website will remain open at this time for those looking to use the resources embedded in these pages. Thank you for joining us over the past ten years. Zàijiàn.....
