Since its inception in 1950, Cornell's East Asia Program (EAP) has stood as the focal point for research, teaching, and outreach on East Asia and the hub of a campus-wide network of specialists devoted to the study of contemporary and historical East Asia. EAP draws its membership of 39 core faculty and 57 affiliated and associated faculty from ten of Cornell's twelve schools and colleges, many of whom are prominent leaders in their scholarly fields.
