Welcome to  Southeast Asia Program Outreach


Southeast Asia Outreach is part of the Cornell University Southeast Asia Program, a U.S. Department of Education National Resource Center (NRC) dedicated to furthering the understanding of the history, culture and societies of Southeast Asia. The outreach office serves students, teachers, businesses, professionals and community members. As an NRC, with funding through Title VI, our outreach programming is year-round and need-based and includes classroom visits, cultural events, exhibits in schools and libraries, activities for after school and enrichment programs, and more. We hold teacher training workshops and arrange speakers for community and business organizations. We can help you tap into the ever-changing array of talent and Southeast Asia expertise at Cornell.
