    In the midst of a human rights crisis and violent pro-democracy manifestations in China, Judicial Watch has obtained records that expose a troubling partnership between a public American university and the Chinese Communists at the heart of the abuses. The records show that the University of Arizona (UA), a taxpayer-funded institution with an enrollment of about 44,000, paid $100,000 to launch a Confucius Institute on its Tucson campus more than a decade ago and subsequently dedicated nearly $2 million and other public resources to keep it going. Confucius Institutes were founded by the Chinese government and are managed by China’s...

    North Carolina State University is the latest university to announce plans to close its Confucius Institute. Ten American colleges and universities have parted ways with these Chinese government-funded centers, seven of them in the last 14 months. The Chinese government funds some 500 Confucius Institutes at colleges and universities around the world, and 107 in the United States. Each one comes with teachers and textbooks chosen and paid for by the Chinese government, along with about $100,000 in annual operating funds. In exchange, China gains a key opportunity to shape the minds of college students and an easy way to...

    The Chinese government wants to polish its terribly tarnished image and one of the tactics it has been using is to influence the education of American college students. Since 2004, the Chinese have been sponsoring “Confucius Institutes” at colleges and universities around the world that are willing to host them. A Chinese government agency pays for most if not all of the cost of the programs that cover Chinese language, culture and history. Since many students want to learn about China, that seems like a good deal that saves the school money. Read more....

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Three U.S. Republican lawmakers said on Wednesday they wanted China’s Confucius Institute cultural centers in the United States to register as foreign agents, and to require all U.S. universities to disclose major gifts from foreign sources. Run by the Chinese government, the Confucius Institutes offer language and cultural programs at more than 100 U.S. colleges and universities. They have been criticized as an attempt by Beijing to influence U.S. higher education. Senators Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton, and Representative Joe Wilson introduced the “Foreign Influence Transparency Act,” which would require the institutes to register under the Foreign...
