College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Founded in 1959, the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) at the University of Kansas (KU), remains the only such center in the Great Plains region. The excellence of our faculty, depth of our East Asian Library, and strong institutional support, combined with the long-term stability of our program, make CEAS an invaluable regional and national resource.

Mission Statement
The mission of CEAS is to produce specialists in East Asian languages and cultures and provide expertise on these cultures to the state, region, and nation. The Center supports teaching, faculty and student research, and the development of library and media resources. It offers an array of programs to enhance the educational experience of students at KU and share our resources with the community, K-12 and post-secondary educators, civic groups, government, and business.
