Center for East Asian Studies
The Center for East Asian Studies at Central
University provides opportunities for
students and faculty, as well as the Connecticut
business community, to keep abreast of changes in economics and politics, and of
comparative advantages in China,
Japan, and Korea.
The center seeks to develop and
enhance global awareness, cultural diversity, and civic responsibility by
fostering support for seminars, lectures, workshops, and exhibitions for faculty,
students, and businesses in the U.S. and abroad; reciprocal visits of music,
artistic, and sports groups; research and conferences; programs to promote
international and intercultural understanding; and contacts and connections
between Connecticut and the East Asian community, as well as student and
faculty exchanges at CCSU's sister universities in China, Japan, and Korea.
In addition, the Dr. Mong Koo
Chung/Hyundai Endowment Fund, the Ki Hoon Kim Scholarship Fund, Koh Scholarship
Fund, Yoko Niibo Scholarship Fund, and C. J. Huang Endowment, among others,
award scholarships to those who are eligible and meet all requirements. Funds
are also available to CCSU faculty who want to do research work in Japan and Korea. These are administered by the
CCSU Foundation, Inc.
