The UCLA Confucius Institute is building upon an impressive array of education and community resources. We are making connections between existing organizations, developing new initiatives, and serving as a link to the diverse communities of Southern California and the world. The UCLA Confucius Institute (UCLA CI) was founded through a partnership between UCLA, the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Our mission is to promote the teaching and learning of Chinese language, history, and culture throughout Southern California.
