Assumption College Joins ASIANetwork

Assumption College has joined ASIANetwork, a consortium of 170 liberal arts college devoted to promoting Asian Studies. Created in 1992, the AsiaNetwork collaborates with more than 170 colleges to encourage Asian studies as part of an undergraduate liberal arts curriculum. The network supports curriculum development, encourages collaborative research between institutions and between students and faculty, and stimulates fresh approaches to teaching and learning via its publications and an annual conference.

Associate Provost Louise Carroll Keeley noted the powerful synergies offered by the new membership. "Assumption has always rooted its mission in the primacy of the liberal arts and accented great teaching. The burgeoning student and faculty interest in Asia, whether its politics, art, history or economic dynamism, will be well-served by our membership in ASIANetwork."

Dr. Deborah Kisatsky, Chair of Assumption’s History department concurred. “By joining ASIANetwork, Assumption joins important trans-disciplinary conversations about Asia's place in the world and helps further our educational mission of enhanced global awareness and responsibility.”
