Yingyang Wu

Master's Student in Education and Volunteer

Yingyang Wu, a first-year Master's student in Instructional Systems Technology, was born and raised in southeast China. Her experience volunteering during undergrad in China helped to foster her interest in cross-cultural communication. Upon coming to America, Yingyang drew upon this every growing interest to volunteer for EASC. She has since been an active volunteer for EASC, leading hands-on activities in Chinese crafts at a center for individuals with developmental disabilities; giving a presentation at a local retirement center about the Chinese New Year; and introducing local scouts and the community to Chinese culture at Mathers Museum. “I hope that by serving at the East Asian Studies Center, I could spread the fascinating inter-cultural experience and contribute to the mutual understanding between American and Asian culture at IUB,” she says.

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).
