The Pittsburgh Asia Consortium is a collaboration of academic and nonprofit organizations in and around the greater Pittsburgh area. PAC aims to foster greater knowledge and understanding about Asia, which encompasses many peoples, languages, literatures,
and disciplines, across a broad geographical area of the world.
The goal is to bring together organizations with an interest in educating academics, students, and the community about Asia; but who may individually lack sufficient faculty, resources, or finances to do so on a sustained basis.
Members include the University of Pittsburgh, Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Saint Vincent College, Duquesne University, Carlow University, Grove City College, Chatham University, California University of
Pennsylvania, and Washington & Jefferson College.
Indiana University of Pennsylvania hosted the first PAC conference in 2012, and will do so again in 2020. See below for details about the previous PAC conferences and IUP.
