TIL that the US has been quietly closing Confucius Institutes on college campuses, due to political pressure.

Confucius Institutes, among other things, are testing sites for the HSK, which are a series of exams on the Chinese language. These exams are open to anyone, not just college students. It's just that CIs are often located in colleges.

There was a law passed in 2019 stating that colleges can't receive funding from the DoD for Chinese language studies if they have a Confucius Institute on campus.

There have also been protests claiming that CIs discriminate by refusing to hire Falun Gong members, and that they have a chilling effect on academic freedom because they are affiliated with the Chinese government.
