We encourage all students to become involved with the Weatherhead East Asian Institute by attending events and staying up to date with Institute programming or by more formally becoming involved with student organizations and the Undergraduate Initiative.
A number of independent student groups focused on East Asia are active in generating programming for the Columbia University community.
Undergraduate students are key constituents to our Institute’s mission to enhance understanding of East and Southeast Asia to the wider community. To achieve this mission, we strive to enrich students’ education about the region through a stream of events and programs, courses, internships, and study abroad opportunities.
Founded and run by students, APAC serves the entire university community by organizing events, distributing information, and coordinating East Asia-related activities while building a community for students interested in East Asia.
