- In recent years, Texas Southern University was involved in a contract with China that gave the CCP a considerable amount of control overwhat is taught at the Confucius Institute on American soil.
- The contract stated that TSU “must accept” the CCP’s assessment of teaching quality at the Confucius Institute.
- One expert on U.S. relations with China told Campus Reform that this is a “shameful abdication of an American university’s responsibility to protect academic freedom.”
Texas Southern University was involved in an agreement with Beijing Jiaotong University, which gave a considerable amount of control to China over what curriculum was taught in TSU’s Confucius Institute, documents obtained by Campus Reform reveal.
The contract, which was signed in 2012, gave BJTU power to decide the “themes of academic reports and the implementation plans,” while Texas Southern University’s Confucius Institute “must accept the assessment of the [Confucius Institute] Headquarters on the teaching quality,” according to the agreement.
In addition, the 2012 agreement between Confucius Institute Headquarters of China and Texas Southern University stated that the Confucius Institute Headquarters was obligated to “provide 3,000 volumes of Chinese books, teaching materials, and audio-visual materials.”
According to a separate agreement signed in 2014, the Chinese university must “provide one or two visiting scholars/instructors on Chinese language and culture each year.” Texas Southern University was also required to provide living accommodations and local travel arrangements for the Chinese professors when they were teaching at the institute.
