Asian American Studies Fund: Goal Reached!
July 4, 2014 § Leave a comment
Good tidings from America’s premiere collegiate development office this Independence Day:
Not only has the Asian American Studies Fund reached its $250k goal, it has surpassed this goal, reaching as of last count $265,347! Donors from every decade between the 1950s and the 2010s are represented, in addition to graduate alums, multigenerational alums, and parents of alums.
The Princeton Asian American Students Association would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to this great effort. This permanently endowed fund is another major step in establishing an Asian American studies program here on campus.
One final note: professor Anne Cheng ’85, who taught the Introduction to Asian American Studies course last semester, will be co-director of the Program in American Studies in spring 2015, and director in fall 2015. AASA congratulates Professor Cheng, an absolutely integral advocate for Asian American studies on campus, for her appointment!
