All COSAS events are open to the public.
The focus of the Committee on Southern Asian Studies (COSAS), which is supported through a University endowment, is to support and implement faculty and student academic and research projects that broadly encompass the study of South and Southeast Asia.
As of 2020-2021, the Committee has sixty-seven members. COSAS members represent approximately eighteen degree-granting departments and programs across the university.
Members meet regularly to plan and implement programming and academic programs to enhance the study of Southern Asia at the University.
