Greetings from the Co-Directors

Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania’s Program in Asian American Studies (ASAM).

ASAM aims to prepare students intellectually as well as socially for the opportunities and challenges of their future careers whatever industry or area they choose. ASAM was established in Fall 1996 as a result of collective student, faculty, and alumni action. We are one of a handful of Ivy League institutions with a course of study in this dynamic and growing field, and we recently celebrated our 25th Anniversary!
