Outreach

About the Outreach Program

The South Asia Center’s Outreach program serves K-12 teachers and students, post-secondary institutions, businesses, and the general public regionally and nationally. Our K-12 teacher training activities are routinely organized in collaboration with other organizations within University of Pennsylvania, such as the Penn Museum Education Department and the Graduate School of Education, and with community-based organizations, such as Global Education Motivators (GEM). OurSpeakers Bureau brings faculty, graduate students, and the Assistant Director into regional K-12 classrooms to present on South Asia topics. Our annual Asia Day event, STARTALK summer language programs, and many other cultural events bring high school students from the region to Penn campus to learn about South Asian languages and cultures from Penn faculty and advanced graduate students.
