With funding from the NEH, the East-West Center has developed educational and research programming for K-12 educators and college and university faculty since 1990. In seven teachers’ workshops, middle and high school educators from across the United States had the opportunity to study the attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II. They visited the Arizona Memorial and were able to meet with Pearl Harbor survivors and others who lived in Hawaii during the war, as well as with Japanese Americans who were placed in internment camps. Through Institutes for College and University Teachers, the East-West Center has helped faculty become stronger instructors and researchers in a wide variety of areas related to the United States, Asia, and the Pacific. In addition to World War II and the Pacific, faculty have studied the Silk Road and Early Globalization and the religions of Asia and the Pacific.
