The establishment of the Confucius Institute (CI) at The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus reflects the recognition at the highest levels of the campus leadership that its work needed to be internationalized if it was to transform to remain relevant to its community. 
The decision to establish the CI also had the purpose of keeping the campus aligned with the goals and objectives of host country Barbados and all countries served by the campus, to deepen and expand cooperation with China.
From its establishment on April 20, 2015, the CI has reflected the steadfast commitment of the campus to the mutual goals of educational cooperation as agreed in the Memorandum of Understanding of July 7, 2014 between the CI Headquarters and the Cave Hill Campus. This has enabled the CI to equip generations of students with the knowledge to both see China as a viable option for pursuing their life objectives and with the tools to do so.
The CI is a joint undertaking of the Cave Hill Campus and the China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL).
