Cornell combines Ivy League excellence in the liberal arts with the kind of practical instruction in
agriculture, economic development, planning, and human services that is typical of a major land grant
university. This unique combination creates extraordinary opportunities for research, scholarship and
interdisciplinary education. The East Asia Program, South Asia Program, and Southeast Asia Program stand
at the hub of their respective campus-wide networks that encompass virtually all of Cornell's schools
Attention to Asia in the form of courses, faculty, research, libraries, art exhibitions, language
learning, resources, student organizations, and exchange programs extends throughout this pluralistic
structure, but is coordinated and supported by these centers of excellence. The Asia Programs are
recipients of U. S. Department of Education Title VI funding and are thus recognized as National Resource
Centers. Each sponsor numerous lectures and events on Asia, administer outreach programs, and contribute
widely to academic work through their own publication series.
