As Cornell’s focal point for research, teaching, and engagement with East Asia, the East Asia Program (EAP) serves as the hub of a campus-wide network of specialists and as a forum for the interdisciplinary study of contemporary and historical East Asia. The program draws its membership of 39 core faculty, 15 language instructors, and numerous affiliated faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students from eight of Cornell’s 12 schools and colleges.

EAP’s core commitment is to foster and facilitate East Asia-oriented intellectual communication and cross-disciplinary collaboration between departments and programs across the university. EAP also advocates the advancement of knowledge of East Asia beyond the Cornell community through sponsoring and coordinating events such as workshops, colloquia, conferences, and film series.
