Center for Asian Studies statement on institutional racism in the US
The Center for Asian Studies recognizes the systemic nature and brutal expression of racism in the United States. People of Asian descent in the US have been painfully subjected to this racism, and Asian cultures and peoples have long been racially stereotyped and discriminated against within US institutions, along with other communities of color, including African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans. We condemn racist acts of police brutality and excessive force that have been used against all people of color in this country, but especially against African Americans and Latinos, who have experienced the overwhelming majority of this excessive force. We stand in full support of protestors and civil rights organizations in their calls for justice and accountability. CAS is committed to helping ensure racial equality in all facets of life at the University of Colorado Boulder, and to calling out any marginalization and racist treatment of students, faculty, and staff occurring on campus and in the wider community.
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.
