About OUCI

Established in 2006 , the Confucius Institute at the University of Oklahoma (OUCI) seeks to support Oklahoma educators in their efforts to teach the Chinese language, and to assist those Oklahoma businesses that wish to do business in the Chinese speaking world. OUCI was the first Confucius Institute in the southern half of the United States.

The University of Oklahoma Confucius Institute was founded as a partnership between the University of Oklahoma and Beijing Normal University. Under the leadership of officials from both universities, and with strong support from sponsors and partners, OUCI has become one of the most comprehensive Confucius Institutes in the nation.
