EAC Operations during the COVID-19 Pandemic

March 30, 2020

The East Asia Center remains committed to advancing knowledge of China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan through undergraduate and graduate programs, faculty research, and outreach programs for the larger community.

To support our mission, all operations moved online and staff worked remotely between March 2020 through August 2021.

Beginning September 2021, we resumed on-campus operations. East Asia Center staff are working hybrid schedules, working some days in the office and some days remotely. Due to personal leave needs, staff do not have fixed in-office schedules at this time but remain available via email.

Please contact Managing Director Paul Carrington ( if you have questions or concerns. For students inquiring about FLAS fellowships, please visit the FLAS website or email
