Center for Southeast Asian Studies


The University of Michigan is proud of a long history of involvement in Asian studies. Since the 1870s, scholars from the University have been engaged in research, education, service, and politics relating to Southeast Asia.

Traditionally, our faculty associates have been engaged in a wide range of service activities, including consulting for the U.S. government, foundations, and international agencies; assisting economic development, public health, population planning, and refugee relief programs; collaborating on faculty exchanges with Southeast Asian academic institutions; conducting workshops and institutes for educators in primary and secondary schools; and advising various business communities.
