Founded in 1959, the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Kansas is the major academic hub and premiere outreach network in the Great Plains region, collaborating effectively with partners to disseminate knowledge about East Asian languages and cultures to build global competencies in the 21st century. The Center is funded by a Department of Education Title VI grant to serve as a National Resource Center with the mission of increasing knowledge of East Asian histories, languages, cultures, and current events in the region and beyond. Part of our mission is to collaborate with area educators to enhance international content by:
- Offering workshops to bring East Asian content into K-12 classrooms
- Providing lesson plans and modules to support curriculum internationalization
- Bolstering K-12 and community college DEI initiatives
- Creating unique classroom experiences for students to experience East Asia
