After Confucius Institutes: China’s Enduring Influence on American Higher Education

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 | 11 AM Eastern

Cosponsored by the Heritage Foundation


Confucius Institutes, once a strategic part of China’s overseas influence campaign, have almost disappeared from the United States: 104 of 118 have shut down. But the demise of Confucius Institutes has not deterred the Chinese government, which has persuaded American colleges and universities to reopen and rebrand Confucius Institute programs under new names.

A new report from the National Association of Scholars, After Confucius Institutes: China's Enduring Influence on American Higher Education, documents the new ways in which the Chinese government exerts undue influence on American colleges and universities.

Join us on Tuesday, June 21st, at 11 am ET, at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC, as we release this new report. Guests may attend in-person or participate by live-stream.

Representative Jim Banks, Chairman of the Republican Study Committee, will deliver a keynote address. The event will also feature Walter Lohman, director of the Asian Studies Center at the Heritage Foundation; Keith Whitaker, chairman of the National Association of Scholars; Rachelle Peterson, senior research fellow at the National Association of Scholars and coauthor of After Confucius Institutes; and Ian Oxnevad, a research fellow at the National Association of Scholars.
