Educational Outreach

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.

For more information on how you can take advantage of what the Center has to offer you, check our homepage for the calendar of upcoming events or contact Randi Hacker, CEAS Outreach Coordinator, rhacker@ku.edu , (785) 864-3832. Randi is standing by to help you bring an East Asian component to your events and classrooms.
