Welcome to the University of Washington Southeast Asian Community, Education & Leadership Network web site. The purpose of this site is to centralize the Southeast Asian-focused resources available on the UW Seattle campus. We understand the university can be a challenging environment for those coming from Southeast Asian communities and difficult to navigate for anyone who is new to the campus.
We are excited to launch our inaugural web site to share the ongoing developments of Southeast Asian current events and relevant information. We recognize the need to provide guidance for these students to find academic, social, community and cultural support systems. This site is also dedicated to serving the needs of Southeast Asian staff, faculty and communities.

For more information, please contact Linda Ando and Chanira Reang Sperry at seaceln@uw.edu.
