The USF Confucius Institute is one of over 300 Confucius Institutes worldwide. USF is the first university in Florida and the first major public research university in the Southeastern United States to establish a Confucius Institute.

The USF Confucius Institute assists the educational and business communities in Tampa Bay to develop closer ties with China through Chinese language instruction and cultural exchange. The USF Confucius Institute offers Chinese language and culture classes year round. The Institute focuses on educational initiatives related to tourism, trade, and sustainable healthy communities.

The Confucius Institute at the University of South Florida is a collaborative effort between China's Office of Chinese Language Council International ("Hanban") under the Ministry of Education and USF’s designated Chinese partner.
