"The Center for Southeast Asian Studies was established in 1963 at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. Located 65 miles west of Chicago, Northern Illinois University is a comprehensive undergraduate and graduate university with approximately 23,000 students. A federally funded National Resource Center since 1997, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies provides leadership, focus, and coordination for Southeast Asian studies at the university. It also provides outreach and K-12 teacher training for communities throughout northern Illinois.

Professor Jui-Ching Wang, NIU School of Music and the NIU Gamelan Ensemble performed for 450 freshmen at Naperville North High School in Naperville on Wednesday, May 2, 2007. The Gamelan performance was for Naperville North High School Cultures classes. A core group of NNHS social studies teachers have worked with the Center since 2002 in bringing Southeast Asian cultures into their classrooms.

One of our most unique resources is SEAsite, a comprehensive and varied set of interactive learning resources for studying Southeast Asian languages, literatures and cultures on the world wide web - all developed here by faculty and students and accessible from our home page."
