In November of 2006, The University of Massachusetts and China's Ministry of Education launched the University of Massachusetts Confucius Institute, a non-profit public institute to promote the teaching and understanding of Mandarin language and culture and support Chinese language education in Massachusetts.
The Confucius Institute, located at UMass Boston, is the seventh established in the United States and the first in New England. The institute provides programs and services including teaching of Mandarin, training teachers, curriculum development and cultural events. It also provides learning opportunities for the community, a clearinghouse of Chinese language and cultural materials, and a platform for research into Chinese language and culture.
