CSEAS joins new GETSEA consortium

August 13, 2020

CSEAS is pleased to announce that it is 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.

The Southeast Asia Program at Cornell University is serving as the administrative host for GETSEA. Along with CSEAS, the other members of the consortium include the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, University of Michigan; the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Northern Illinois University; the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, University of Hawai’i-Mānoa; the Southeast Asia Center, University of Washington; the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and UCLA's Center for Southeast Asian Studies.
