UH CSEAS Co-Founds New GETSEA Consortium

We are delighted to announce that UHCSEAS are a founding member of the newly-established “Graduate Education and Training in Southeast Asian Studies” (GETSEA) consortium. The consortium has been awarded a $275,000 grant by the Henry Luce Foundation through its Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia (LuceSEA). GETSEA was formed with the mission of enhancing graduate education in Southeast Asian Studies across North America.

As a cross-institutional network led by the eight current and recent Title VI National Resource Centers (NRCs) on Southeast Asia, GETSEA will work to expand the collaborative infrastructure between the centers of Southeast Asian studies, including a virtual speaker series, specialized online mini-courses, a mentoring network, professional development workshops for graduate students, and the creation of a framework for shared language instruction.

This collaboration between Southeast Asia centers will be critical as we continue to adapt to new
virtual learning environments. This grant will allow UHCSEAS and our fellow NRCs to foster
productive new connections in our teaching and research, and to come together during a time of
social distancing to strengthen our scholarly interactions.

The Southeast Asia Program at Cornell University will serve as the initial administrative host for
GETSEA. The members of the consortium include:
