The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA), funded by the Freeman Foundation, is a multi-year national initiative to encourage and facilitate teaching and learning about East Asia in world history, world geography, other social studies courses, and language arts/ world literature courses. Launched in 1998, this nationwide program is a collaboration of the East Asian studies programs of five institutions: the University of Washington, the University of Colorado, Indiana University, Columbia University, and the Five College Center for East Asian Studies at Smith College.

Since 1998 NCTA has supported seminars on East Asia for an average of 1,000 teachers per year across the country. Seminar leaders facilitate 30-hour seminars on East Asian history and cultures that incorporate primary-source selections from the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean traditions. Teachers receive a stipend upon completion of the seminar and seminar materials, an excellent selection of seminar materials, and a generous donation of exemplary curriculum materials. There is also a stipend for participation in follow-up meetings, opportunities to apply for NCTA study tours to East Asia, and additional enrichment programs.

The Southern California Consortium on International Studies (SOCCIS)

Jonathan Weil, Director
Los Angeles Center for International Studies
Loyola Marymount University
Los Angeles, CA

The Southern California Consortium on International Studies (SOCCIS) is a voluntary association of public and private colleges and universities established in 1972 for the purpose of coordinating and sharing resources to further international studies in the southern California region. Through the various activities it sponsors, SOCCIS strengthens the institutional commitment to international and foreign area studies; it promotes and strengthens the network of faculty in the region; it encourages institutional and faculty commitment to an "internationalized" curriculum and provides means of enhancing faculty teaching capabilities in international and foreign area studies through seminars, workshops, and summer institutes, many of which are open to the general public; and it strives to ensure that the institutions of higher learning in this region offer curriculum that enable their students to gain an understanding of the lives and aspirations of the people of other countries near and far, an appreciation for cultures different from their own, and an attitude conducive toward international cooperation to solve the many human and ecological problems that cannot be remedied by one country acting alone. In keeping with these goals, SOCCIS also supports statewide and national efforts to strengthen international and foreign area studies and to improve the level of public awareness and understanding of other peoples and cultures and international events.
