Japan Disaster Relief

The students, faculty, and staff of the East Asian Studies Center extend our deep concern and condolences to the people of Japan and to all those who have been affected by the recent earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear radiation crisis.

As part of a campus-and community-wide response, EASC cosponsored a teach-in and benefit event on March 30 (see additional details and the program here) and a graduate student forum on April 19 (see details here).
