Department Description

Established in 1966 by the Arizona Board of Regents, the Center for Asian Research promotes the study of Asia among faculty, students and the community. It is the only center of its kind in Arizona and brings together more than 80 faculty members in disciplines and professional programs across the university who engage in research and teaching on topics concerning this part of the world. Many experts refer to the 21st century as the Asian Century and we invite you to explore ASU’s considerable resources to enhance knowledge of Asia, its cultural traditions and languages among the ASU community and beyond.
