The Confucius Institute at UNH (CI-UNH) is a partnership between the University of New Hampshire and Chengdu University in China that engages the life of the university with the larger community, both locally and globally. The institute offers a full curriculum in Chinese language and culture. CI-UNH also provides opportunities for cultural learning and exchange for regional schools — primary through post-secondary. At a time when China is the third largest trading partner for New Hampshire, CI-UNH can provide unique opportunities for business and industry in the state.
