Asian American Studies Program at Cornell
At the time of its founding in 1987, the Asian American Studies Program at Cornell University was the first such program in the Ivy League. Today the program has faculty members in the humanities and social sciences in a variety of departments and colleges. This cross-college, university-wide position accommodates the extensive teaching and research interests of the Program's faculty and reflects the breadth of the vibrant field of Asian American Studies in general. 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.

Professor Derek Chang featured in Cornell Daily Sun
Great piece on AASP Director Prof. Derek Chang in Cornell Daily Sun and good summary of program's role on campus: "This space becomes a kind of safe space for students. Our courses become a kind of place where students can sit and think and talk about questions that affect them that they cannot get elsewhere on campus."
