East Asian studies/Education major and Volunteer
IU senior Ryosuke Koyama plans to become a high school Japanese teacher in the U.S. after he graduates. His work as an EASC volunteer has been excellent preparation for his future career—he’s taught Japanese at local elementary and middle schools; introduced calligraphy to families at Lotus Blossoms, an annual art education outreach event; and lectured on Japanese culture to elementary students in Canada and southern Indiana through interactive video conferencing. He loves sharing his culture with children and families. “I’m glad to see the enthusiasm of people toward a new culture,” he says. “It inspires me every time I teach Japanese.”
By educating about Asia for more than 30 years, Indiana University’s East Asian Studies Center has been a leading resource for the university, professional communities, K-12 schools, and the general public. As state funding for higher education decreases, our ability to prepare the next generation of educators and practitioners depends increasingly on gifts from generous alumni and friends.
We encourage you to support the East Asian Studies Center.
- Volunteer: There are several volunteer opportunities available for people who wish to donate their time and skills to the EASC.
- Make a donation: Every gift makes a difference for our students, faculty, and K-12 teachers. There are a number of options for giving, including specific EASC funds.
