Welcome to the East Asia Resource Center

The East Asia Resource Center invites K-12 educators to explore the wealth of opportunities available to them to deepen their knowledge of East Asia. 

K-12 teachers in all stages of their careers will find that the East Asia Resource Center (EARC) is a great place to learn more about China, Japan, and Korea. Year-round programming includes: the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) seminars; intensive summer institutes in Seattle; and other events such as one-day workshops on East Asian art, culture, and history.

The EARC also cosponsors events with other outreach centers at the Jackson School of International Studies, while the UW East Asia Center (EAC) provides a wide array of lectures for the general public on China, Japan, and Korea.
