Information for Schools
Since 2001, the Center for East Asian Studies has held an annual Asia Day in February on the Penn campus.
This one-day event is aimed to provide high school students with an opportunity to nurture interest in Asia and gain a better understanding of this incredibly varied region. The students not only gain valuable information about Asia from experts (Penn faculty and graduate students) in their respective fields, but also get a taste of pan-Asian cuisine, participate in interactive performances and activities, and experience a day on Penn's campus!
East Asia in the Schools
The East Asia in the Schools program is a special effort to reach high schools in the region. By making arrangements through the Center for East Asian Studies, area high schools can host a University of Pennsylvania professor specializing in East Asia who will share his or her expertise with students in one-hour lectures on many popular aspects of China, Japan, and Korea.
