Masters Student in East Asian Studies and EASC Volunteer
Tiphani Dixon is currently seeking a Master's degree with a concentration in East Asian Studies. She is the cultural ambassador for Japan within the East Asian Studies Department. In this capacity, Tiphani has participated in the Lotus Blossom World Bazaar for the past two years, helping elementary school students experience East Asian culture through crafts. Additionally, she developed a presentation regarding musical instruments native to Japan, which was broadcast via satellite to an elementary school in Alabama. Tiphani also assisted with the student-run Korea Night, and developed a presentation for Japan Olympiad that explained the elements of karate to high-school students in the lower Midwest region. She is also in contact with the Office of Overseas Study at IU, and assisted in study abroad orientation by providing an overview of adjusting to life in Japan.
Tiphani believes intercultural communication, exposure, and intentional interactions are the keys to establishing globally conscious individuals. It is because of this philosophy that she loves volunteering, working with people, and promoting interest in East Asia.
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.
