Student Unions & Associations
The East Asian Studies Students’ Union (EASSU) is an active student body dedicated to the undergraduate students of the East Asian Department. We are not only a liaison between students and the department, but we are here to make your learning experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. Throughout the year, we hold both academic and social events that relate to the East Asian cultures. If you are interested in helping out with events or would like to participate in an event, please contact us. Get INVOLVED and make your university experience the best it can be.
The East Asian Studies Graduate Student Union (EASGSU) represents the interests of graduate students in the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Toronto. Our elected representatives aim to ensure that the graduate student experience is both intellectually and socially engaging. We coordinate numerous social and academic events throughout the course of the year, including an annual graduate student conference which attracts top young scholars from around world, currently entering its 11th year. Our members also act as editorial staff for the East Asia Forum, a graduate student journal which publishes exceptional scholarship from graduate students the world over.
