Asia Network Faculty Enhancement Programme
What is ASIANetwork?
A consortium of over 170 North American colleges, ASIANetwork strives to strengthen the role of Asian Studies within the framework of liberal arts education to help prepare succeeding generations of undergraduates for a world in which Asian societies play prominent roles in an ever more interdependent world.
The unique teaching mission of the undergraduate liberal arts institution poses special opportunities and challenges in the development of Asian Studies. ASIANetwork seeks to encourage the study of Asian countries and cultures on our campuses and to enable our students and faculty to experience these cultures first hand. In a time of fiscal constraints, ASIANetwork facilitates conversations among faculty and administrators concerning the development and strengthening of Asian Studies programs, as well as ways to foster collaboration among institutions.
ASIANetwork convenes an annual conference that includes faculty panels on research and pedagogy and student research posters. We publish twice a year ASIANetwork Exchange, A Journal for Asian Studies in the Liberal Arts. In partnership with external foundations and institutions, including Freeman Foundation, Luce Foundation, and Mellon Foundation, we offer to our members a number of programs for the promotion of the teaching of Asian Studies.
