Professor of History
Chair of Asian Studies
College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University

As a China historian and a U.S.-China relations expert, Richard Bohr can look back over a distinguished career spanning four decades. Bohr has studied the China of old while observing firsthand the dramatic transformations in China’s more recent past. Yet, Bohr insists that it is the future, not the past, that he is most concerned about and actively seeks to impact. “It is an urgent priority at all levels of American education to train future ‘Asia Hands’ in the intercultural communication and relationship-building skills necessary to managing peaceful and prosperous U.S.-Asia interaction.” (Read more)

We have a vigorous K-12 teacher outreach program, including our flagship NCTA programs:

 

 

 

 

Together, these programs have reached thousands of educators since their inception in 1999.


Since 2002, EASC has also offered NCTA Study Tours- Two to three week educational excursions to China, Japan, and Korea for NCTA alumni

As the winner of the prestigious 2005 Goldman Sachs Foundation Prize for Excellence in International Education, we are committed to meeting the professional development needs of teachers and to promoting the study of East Asia among K–12 students.

We also reach business, government, and media through briefings and conferences and the general public through regular sponsorship of cultural events, lifelong learning courses, as well as the colloquium  and film series.
