The newly established Center for East Asian Studies has been featured on Arizona Public Media (AZPM). Dr. Wenhao Diao and Dr. Scott Gregory, co-directors of the Center and Associate Professors in the Department of East Asian Studies, were interviewed about the Center and its mission. The center is the first Title VI NRC at a Hispanic-Serving Institution to focus on East Asia.
AZPM reporter Tony Perkins writes:
"Center for East Asian Studies Co-director Scott Gregory notes that his new center will support collaborations across many regions and specializations related to East Asia on campus: 'In addition to the traditional scope of East Asian studies: China, Japan, Korea, we are also interfacing with Vietnam and the Himalayan regions,' explained Gregory.
Co-director Wenhao Diao adds the grant will make East Asian studies more accessible to students, 'particularly those who have been underrepresented,' she said."
