Educational Outreach is a key component of the Center's agenda. Our staff, faculty and associates are eager to bring their expertise on China, Korea and Japan to K-12 schools, colleges, junior colleges, government agencies, community groups, and businesses in Kansas and Missouri. From classroom visits to public lectures to professional development workshops for teachers, the Center Outreach program has something for everyone with any interest in East Asian culture, language, and customs.
