National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA)

We are a founding member of the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA), a multi-year initiative funded by the Freeman Foundation that facilitates teaching and learning about Asia in middle and high school world history, geography, social studies, and literature courses. Launched in 1998, this nationwide program is a collaboration of the East Asian studies programs of seven national institutions:

- Columbia University
- Five College Center for East Asian Studies
- Indiana University
- University of Colorado
- University of Pittsburgh
- University of Southern California
- University of Washington

Our center currently coordinates seminars for teachers in Indiana as well as national programming which is open to educators from all 50 states.
