Hawley (R-Missouri) told ABC 17 News on Tuesday that he still has concerns about the University of Missouri's partnership with the Confucius Institute, a subsidiary of China's Ministry of Education. The University of Missouri has an agreement with the institute, which expires in 2021. The institute provides free Chinese language classes in Columbia and helps teach Chinese language classes at Columbia Public Schools.

In a July letter, Hawley asked MU to consider dropping the Confucius Institute, citing testimony from FBI Director Christopher Wray to the Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Hawley serves. Wray said the Confucius Institute was an example of China's "soft power," and that Hanban, the company that owns the institute, has ties to China's Communist Party.

EducationUSA, a network supported by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, serves such purpose.
