    Learn More about the Confucius Institute

Each Confucius Institute is free to develop its own range of programs and services depending on the local conditions.  At UAA-CI, the yearly programs include assistance in providing undergraduate instruction and curriculum development in the Chinese language program at UAA, offering non-credit courses about the Chinese language and culture to the Anchorage community, presenting academic lectures on a variety of topics about the Chinese language and culture, supporting K-12 Chinese programs in curriculum development and with material resources, and facilitating students’ Chinese culture experience through summer camp program.

The vision of UAA CI is to become an important center for the cultivation of Alaska-China relations, to provide expertise in Chinese language and culture training, and to be an important resource for our educational institutions. Our mission has therefore five folds:

  • Promote understanding of Chinese language and culture
  • Serve as regional center for  Chinese teacher training and Chinese curriculum development
  • Help address needs of the  business community and the general public
  • Build connections and  partnerships between Alaska and China
