Welcome Alumni!

The CEAS Alumni page is designed to help alumni stay in touch with each other and with East Asian studies at KU. Please update your information by using the Alumni Update Form.

KU graduates who earned degrees (B.A., M.A., or Ph.D.) in East Asian fields or developed East Asian concentrations during their undergraduate careers are welcome to participate in the Alumni page. If you fit in one of these categories and are not listed, please fill out the web form and bring us up to date on your activities.

If you can help us find more of your classmates or other alums, please let us know. We hope to keep this list current and accurate to facilitate networking among our alumni.

Statement from Director

Dear CEAS Community,

I hope you and your families are all well. As you know the university has announced the closures of most if not all events for the Spring semester. Therefore, CEAS will also suspend all events for the rest of the semester.  This includes the Silk Road Symposium, the North Korea Inside Out conference, the Kite Festival as well as Tea and Talks and invited speakers. We will reschedule these events for Fall 2020.

The most important thing is the health and well being of the university and Lawrence community. This is a challenging time, but we will get through this and CEAS events will continue in Fall. You can follow CEAS information and schedule changes on CEAS web page and social media. 

Take Care,

John Kennedy

Director of the Center for East Asian Studies
