Title: Georgetown University Celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Date Published: November 8, 2021

A statement from Asian Studies Program Director Dr. Michael Green in honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month in November:

The contributions of Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and individuals from the Asia-Pacific region richly develop the scholarship, teaching, and exchange at Georgetown University. The Asian Studies Program joins the broader School of Foreign Service and Georgetown University at large in ensuring that Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and individuals from communities of the Asia-Pacific region are celebrated. We seek to do so through building an inclusive community that recognizes and advances the scholarship, policy-making, and research of members from the AAPI and Asian communities. The Asian Studies Program will continue to recruit student and faculty cohorts that are representative of the diversity of the United States, host a number of events, offer courses, and feature guest speakers that contribute to our objectives in being the premier institution to study the Indo-Pacific region through faculty members who are leading practitioners and scholars.

 

 

*Please note that the timing of Georgetown University’s Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month is distinct from the traditional observation during the month of May.
