With generous support from the Henry Luce Foundation, the University of Puget Sound LIASE program focuses on initiatives designed to promote richer and deeper understandings of Southeast Asian cultural, linguistic, and environmental topics among students and faculty. These programs include field-school courses involving research and service in Southeast Asia, new Southeast Asian language courses taught on campus, and faculty field initiatives in the region. The Southeast Asia Symposium brings all of these programs together on the Puget Sound campus, allowing students and faculty to share their research and development with the broader community, while serving as a forum for international speakers, Northwest faculty specialists, and partner organization representatives from Southeast Asia.
