The Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies

The Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies provides a forum for integrated and multi-disciplinary research and teaching on Asia. It supports innovative projects that actively combine teaching, research, and social engagement, creating a unique model of rounded education on Asia. The Institute also promotes general awareness, understanding, and knowledge of Asia, through organizing public events and supporting student and faculty scholarship, as well as interaction and exchanges with partners in Asia. 

Endowed by a gift from the RM Liu Foundation, the Institute for Asia and Asian Studies creates a centralized infrastructure to enhance the University's portfolio of ongoing scholarship and programming in Asian Studies.
