PITTSBURGH BUSINESS TIMES: Pitt suspends program in partially Chinese funded Confucius Institute | WPXI

The University of Pittsburgh is suspending a program that brought Chinese students to Pittsburgh to teach Mandarin to K-12 schools in the area.

The suspension of the program came after U.S. State Department required changes to the program, including more oversight of the instructors and how paperwork was submitted for visas. Belkys Torres, the executive director of global engagement at Pitt, said these changes stemmed from an audit conducted by the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Private Sector Exchange Program Administration (OPA) last fall.
