The Goal of the East Asia Institute is to promote Chinese, Japanese, South Korean, and Vietnamese cultures in every school in Oklahoma and in the community. Provide opportunities for students to participate in events and educational activities that will increase their knowledge and appreciation of East Asian cultures. Some of our initiatives include:
- Chinese language after school programs
- Chinese Business courses for companies
- Professional development for K-12 teachers and principals
- Sister school relationships with student and teacher exchange
The East Asia Institute is housed at the University of Oklahoma Schusterman Center in Tulsa, OK. It works in conjunction with the Confucius Institute* at OU-Norman and the National Consortium for Teaching About Asia.
