Education and Innovation is a collection of personal essays from the two Asia Leadership Treks and seven Asia Leadership Fellowship Tours that took place in 2014. Known as one-of-a-kind experiential learning and public service programs, eighty-eight graduate students and Fellows from Harvard, MIT, and Tufts University traveled to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Seoul in January; to Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Yangon, Bangkok, Jakarta, and Bali in June; and Beijing, Manila, Seoul, Ansan, Pohang, and Kuala Lumpur in July and August. Adopting the responsibilities and mindsets of diplomats, journalists, and teachers in their meetings with individuals from all walks of life, the Trekkers and Fellows in their essays offer a much-needed window into the complex story of contemporary Asia.
