Friends, family, and the UMass Boston community gather to celebrate the achievements of students, staff, and faculty at the Asian American Studies Program Graduation Celebration on May 23, 2011.

UMass Boston's Asian American Studies Program combines culturally responsive classroom instruction with mentoring, community-building, service-learning, and advocacy. Through this holistic approach, our program addresses the social and academic needs of students, as well as the critical capacity-building needs of local Asian American communities in Boston.

Featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education and highlighted by the Association of American Colleges & Universities as a national model, our program offers the largest selection of Asian American Studies courses, faculty, and community resources of any university in New England. We are part of the UMass Boston School for Global Inclusion and Social Development.

Our alumni include teachers, social workers, health care providers, business entrepreneurs, and leaders of local Asian American community organizations, as well as the first Cambodian and Vietnamese refugees to complete Ed.M. and Ed.D. degrees at Harvard.
