The Education Division of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Boston (TECO Boston) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University on October 17, 2017 to support activities and initiatives at the Center for the Study of Asia (BUCSA), an affiliated regional center of the Pardee School, marking the third renewal of the partnership between BUCSA and TECO.
The partnership between TECO and the BUCSA supports teaching, visiting lectures, events, research, libraries and academic rigor.
Catherine Yeh, Director of the Center for the Study of Asia, Adil Najam, Dean of the Pardee School, Scott Lai, Director-General of TECO Boston, and Rose Kuo-chen Chen, Director of the Education Division at TECO Boston spoke at the signing.
Yeh outlined the planned BUCSA initiatives that will be supported by the MOU as well as past initiatives and events made possible by the partnership including Taiwan Forum Lectures, the “Binding Maritime China” Conference, the Asian Women Leaders Forum and the New England Asia Seminar.
The Center for the Study of Asia promotes comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and cross-national understanding of Asia through coordination of teaching missions, research support, community-building among faculty and students, and broad outreach beyond the university. It strives to be an intellectual hub for new ideas and cutting edge research in the humanities and social sciences.
