About Us:

Founded in 1987, the Asian American Studies Program at Cornell University was the first such program in the Ivy League. Today the program offers undergraduate and graduate minors, and a variety of courses, taught by humanities and social science faculty, on the histories and experiences, identities, social and community formations, politics and contemporary concerns of people of Asian ancestry in the U.S. and other parts of the Americas. More information about the program can be found at: https://asianamericanstudies.cornell.edu/

Our inclusive community of scholars, students and staff impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery, and engagement. Our main campus is located in Ithaca, NY, on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' (the Cayuga Nation). Cornell's far-flung global presence includes the medical college's campuses on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and Doha, Qatar, as well as the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island in the heart of New York City.
