With the support of our advisors and sponsors worldwide, KSU Asian Studies faculty members strive to make this conference a meeting ground where you are inspired with new ideas and enriched with new connections. We strive to bring ASIA and the world closer to you!
As an interdisciplinary conference SAUPO will present a global platform of five-way dialogue among business leaders, scholars, diplomats, policymakers, and non-profit practitioners.
