Outreach at the East Asia Center

Through collaboration with a wide variety of departments and programs on campus, as well as a number of Seattle organizations, the East Asia Center has offered outreach events and programs to the public continuously since 1964. Our K-12 outreach program, which is directed by the East Asia Resource Center, is recognized as a leader on the local, regional, and national levels. In addition to serving K-12 teachers, the Center also puts on and co-sponsors events geared towards post-secondary educators, government workers, the business community, the legal community, and the general public.
