Message from the Director

 

Welcome,

 

The Confucius Institute at the University of North Florida is the result of a long-term collaborative effort made by UNF administrators, faculty and students, the Jacksonville Chinese Community and Duval County Public Schools, and the partnership of Shaanxi Normal University and Hanban, China.   

 

As one of the four Confucius Institutes in Florida, the Confucius Institute at the University of North Florida will work with three other institutes collaboratively to promote Chinese language teaching and learning, understanding and awareness of cultures between the United States and China across the state. Supported by administrators, faculty and students, the Confucius Institute at the University of North Florida will assist to strengthen Chinese language curriculum and program development, provide Chinese language teachers’ training and promote diverse campus with an integration of Chinese Culture at UNF. Being a partner with Hanban, Beijing, Shaanxi Normal University, Xi’an, China and Jacksonville community and school districts, Confucius Institute at University of North Florida will dedicate itself to serve the Jacksonville community and school districts through offering serials lectures, seminars and non-credit Chinese language/culture courses, offering Chinese Proficiency Tests, and bringing in Chinese language/culture lectures, conferences and music/art performances.

 

The success of the Confucius Institute at the University of North Florida depends on our continuous collaboration, hard work and contributions. I look forward to having your continued assistance and support.

 

Thank you.

 

 

Ronghua Ouyang, Director of Confucius Institute
