The Confucius Institute at PSU (CI-PSU) promotes cultural exchange and cooperation between the U.S. and the People’s Republic of China. In 2007, the China National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language (HanBan) and Portland State University's Office of International Affairs jointly established the Confucius Institute at PSU as a cultural resource center and non-degree granting entity.

The Hanban provides a library materials grant and resources for hosting visiting Chinese language teachers, as well as a visiting faculty member from Soochow Univeristy, Portland State's sister university in China, located in Portland's sister city, Suzhou, China. The Hanban also provides support for community outreach and development of non-degree programs related to China and Chinese language studies.
