About Us

In the classroom, in scholarship, and through campus and community advocacy, the Program is committed to examining the histories and experiences; identities, social and community formations; politics; and contemporary concerns of people of Asian ancestry in the United States and other parts of the Americas.

Since 1987, Cornell’s Asian American Studies Program has introduced a wide range of students to the multifaceted – the transnational, comparative, and multi- and inter-disciplinary – dimensions of Asian America.  For students of Asian ancestry, our individual courses and minor course of study provide a cultural, historical, social, and political context for understanding their place both within and beyond the University. For all students, Asian American Studies offers a model of a liberal arts education, fostering an educational experience that can be as transformative as it is illuminating. 

We hope that you’ll take a moment or two to reflect on the difference that the Asian American Studies Program has made in your life and to consider the difference that you can now make in the life of the Asian American Studies Program, and in the life of the university as a whole.
