The Graduate Education and Training in Southeast Asian Studies (GETSEA) consortium was formed with the mission of enhancing graduate education in Southeast Asian studies across North America through innovation and collaboration.

The consortium has been awarded a $275,000 grant by the Henry Luce Foundation through its Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia (LuceSEA).

As a cross-institutional network led by the eight current and recent National Resource Centers (NRCs) on Southeast Asia in the United States, GETSEA works to expand the collaborative infrastructure between these eight centers for Southeast Asian studies. In our first full year as a consortium, GETSEA has created a host of initiatives to enhance graduate training in Southeast Asian studies across North America. These initiatives include a virtual speaker series, specialized online mini-courses, a mentoring network, professional development workshops for graduate students, and the creation of a framework for future shared language instruction. We hope you will take advantage of the expanded curricular and networking opportunities afforded by GETSEA. If you have a question or comment for GETSEA, please get in touch with us via our contact page.

This collaboration between Southeast Asia centers will be critical as we continue to adapt to new virtual learning environments in a COVID-19 and post COVID-19 world. With generous funding from the Luce Foundation, the GETSEA consortium allows NRCs to foster productive new connections in teaching and research, to strengthen our scholarly interactions at a crucial time for Southeast Asian studies.
