Welcome to AsiaPacificEd Crossings, a cross-cultural bridge to explore and connect with the Asia Pacific region.


The East-West Center’s AsiaPacificEd Program for Schools created AsiaPacificEd Crossings as an instrument for excellence in cross-cultural learning and exchange.  It brings the world into the classroom and serves as a vehicle for building mutual knowledge among learners and educators from across the United States and the Asia Pacific.


AsiaPacificEd Program for Schools

One of the East-West Center’s signature programs, AsiaPacificEd Program for Schools offers direct experiences and singular opportunities for educators and students to connect with Asia and the Pacific.  Our workshops, travel seminars, summer institutes, and exchange programs embody hands-on learning and cross-cultural collaboration as participants learn about and with one another.  Accessible online, our investigative modules and learning materials are designed to support educator effectiveness and bolster student success, enrich knowledge and skills, and foster lifelong learning.


East-West Center

Established in 1960 by an act of the US Congress, the East-West Center promotes relations between the United States, and the nations of Asia and the Pacific.  The East-West Center brings together not only educators and students, but also leaders of government, business, media, civil society, and academia to learn from each other, disseminate findings to policymakers and the public, and to collaborate on issues of common concern.


East-West Center programs are multinational.  Through them, participants and institutions from throughout the Asia Pacific region join knowledge with action, so that people not only understand complex challenges, but also design and implement solutions.  During its 50-year history, the Center has involved more than 50,000 people directly in its programs and has earned a reputation for superior scholarship and innovative approaches.


AsiaPacificEd Crossings draws upon the vast assets of the East-West Center and its extensive networks throughout the United States, Asia, the Pacific, and the world to further the Center’s K-12 mission.
