TEAC was established in 1972 to improve contact between East Asian faculty at Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. TEAC has since expanded to include East Asian specialists and other interested scholars from across North Carolina and throughout the Southeast. TEAC chooses a coordinator each year from one of the three institutions to organize its annual conference and to manage the affairs of TEAC.
