“AAUP urges universities to terminate or renegotiate contracts for Chinese-government funded centers of language and culture. With about 90 Confucius Institutes established in U.S., will it have an impact?”
“University professors in the United States have joined their Canadian counterparts in urging universities to cut ties with Confucius Institutes unless the agreements that bring them to campus are re-worked to guarantee academic freedom.
“A report by the American Association of University Professors said universities “have sacrificed the integrity of the university and its academic staff” by allowing the Chinese government to supervise curriculum and staff at the institutes it has established on more than 100 North American campuses to promote Chinese culture and language.”
MSU readers, have any of you worked with our Confucius Institute here? What are your thoughts?
