We are a nexus of knowledge on East Asia

The Center builds networks of knowledge, practice, resources, and discovery that enhance understanding of East Asia locally, regionally, and nationally by: 

• supporting interdisciplinary research and teaching;
• linking academic resources with K-12, business, and professional communities;
• investing in innovative scholarship and courses;
• assisting students in planning their post-graduation careers;
• coordinating conferences and workshops; and
• fostering dialogue and collaboration among scholars, educators, students, practitioners, and policy makers.
