The Center for Asian Studies was established in 1999 to advance knowledge of Asia through undergraduate and graduate education, faculty research, and outreach programs for the broader community. The Center is committed to managing and expanding the interdisciplinary major in Asian Studies by providing student fellowships, scholarships, and study opportunities, by investing in faculty research and professional development, by providing support for building Asia-related resources on the CU Boulder campus, by developing academic exchanges with Asian-based colleagues and students, and by engaging the local community with Asia-related programs and events. The Center also serves to promote the University’s Flagship 2030 Initiative to ‘Build a Global Crossroads’ by internationalizing education on campus and promoting Asia in the context of global studies. Finally, the Center serves as a link and community-building resource for faculty and students across the University.
