"Infusing Chinese Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum" | July 31 - August 11, 2017 | East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii

ASDP Infusing Institute

Infusing Asian Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum

Housing and Logistics

Lodging.  Lodging for the Institute will be provided at the East-West Center’s faculty guesthouse, Lincoln Hall, which is located a short, 5-minute walk from Burns Hall, where most sessions will be held, and a block from the University of Hawaii Hamilton Library.The studio units that are reserved for Institute participants include private bath, telephone, cable TV, internet access, refrigerator, and ceiling fans. None of the units are air-conditioned.

Plans should be made to arrive on July 31, 2016. Participants are required to attend all institute sessions. We will end with an optional final dinner on the August 12, so an evening departure is possible if necessary.  Otherwise, check-out is August 13. Participants wanting to arrive early or extend their stay can do so on a space available basis at Lincoln Hall, or off campus.

Meals. There are a number of food courts and food trucks on the UH campus that cater to students and staff. In addition, meal plans are available for Institute participants who want convenience. But there are many restaurants on and near the campus that are accessible to participants on foot or by bus and that offer food from a wide range of cuisines from inexpensive to fine-dining.

Childcare. Although we encourage participants to consider attending the program without family for most of the institute, we know that is not always possible and almost never preferred. Child-care is available in summer activities programs run by the City as well as from private preschools in the range of $700/month. Applications should be made as early as possible following acceptance into the seminar, ideally just after being notified of acceptance into the institute.
