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.

EASC General Fund

Our general fund supports a rich array of EASC activities and programs and gives us the flexibility we need in a time of rising interest in East Asia to address unexpected opportunities. This fund, for example, helps us support our popular East Asian Colloquium public lecture series.

East Asian Research Fund

The heart of any great university is the partnership that exists between great teachers working with great students to create new knowledge. Your gift to the East Asian Research Fund will help us award grants that support scholarly activity, such as our conference travel grants for graduate students and publication subventions for faculty. Such support is crucial to our ability to enrich instruction, support research, and stimulate the professional growth of our faculty and graduate students.

Korean Program Fund

Gifts to this fund help us continue to build Indiana University’s Korean Studies program through support of our most important resource—our excellent students and faculty. By giving to this fund, you will be supporting our annual undergraduate excellence award in Korean Studies, our annual fellowship for a graduate student in Korean Studies, as well as conference travel grants for faculty and graduate students. Read about the Society of Friends of Korean Studies, which established this fund.

EASC Outreach Fund

From businesses to high schools to government agencies, knowledge about East Asia has never been in greater demand. Give to our outreach fund and you will be supporting activities that promote public awareness and enhance the teaching of East Asian cultures, societies, and languages. Our Japanese Pedagogy Workshops for K-16 Japanese teachers, among other programs, receives support from this fund.
