The Asian Studies Development Program (ASDP) was launched in 1991 to enhance teaching about Asia at American two-year and four-year colleges and universities at the undergraduate level. In recent years, ASDP has also included Asian faculty in selected programs. Since its inception, more than 2,500 professors from the U.S. and Asia have participated in ASDP programs.
A joint program of the East-West Center and the University of Hawai‘i, ASDP offers a variety of content-focused faculty and institutional development programs and activities centered around summer residential institutes, field seminars in Asia, workshops on the U.S. mainland, and an annual academic conference.
AACSU China Studies Institute
The China Studies Institute (CSI) Zhi-Xing China Academic Impact Fellowship Program allows faculty to learn from scholars, business leaders, and education administrators about Chinese civilization, history, language, business and education. The institute encourages participants to develop strategies for incorporating Chinese studies into courses on their campuses.
The Japan Studies Institute (JSI) allows faculty to learn from scholars, business leaders and artists about Japanese civilization, history, language, business and education. JSI offers college and university faculty members without prior experience in Japanese studies the opportunity to learn from scholars, business leaders and artists about Japan, both past and present. The institute encourages participants to develop strategies for incorporating Japanese studies into courses on their campuses. It involves two weeks of intensive seminars, lectures, readings, films, and cultural activities related to Japanese history, culture, literature, government, business, language and education.
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers approximately 470 teaching, research or combination teaching/research awards in over 125 countries. Opportunities are available for college and university faculty and administrators as well as for professionals, artists, journalists, scientists, lawyers, independent scholars and many others. In addition to several new program models designed to meet the changing needs of U.S. academics and professionals, Fulbright offers flexible awards including multi-country opportunities.
