The East Asian Center at Central Connecticut State University promotes and supports academic success, excellence and leadership among all Asian and Asian American students at CCSU. The Center complements CCSU’s mission and goals, particularly the University’s distinctive elements of international education, interdisciplinary studies, and cross-cultural initiatives. It also supplements other Asia-related programs and activities at the University and serves as a hub for contacts and connections between Connecticut and the East Asian community, as well as student and faculty exchanges at CCSU’s partner universities in China, Japan, and Korea.

The East Asian Center facilitates the development and enhancement of global awareness, cultural diversity, and civic responsibility by forging interdisciplinary connections at the university level, and fostering support for seminars, lectures, workshops, and exhibitions for faculty, students, educators, business and the public in the U.S. and abroad; reciprocal visits of music, artistic, and sports groups; research and conferences; programs to promote international and inter-cultural understanding; and opportunities for students and faculty, as well as the Connecticut business community, to keep abreast of changes in economics and politics and their comparative advantages in China, Japan, and Korea.
