About Us

The Department of Asian American Studies at UCLA grew out of the social movements and civil rights struggles of the 1960s and 1970s, and, since its founding in 2004, has been a national leader in all aspects of this vibrant and fast growing field of academic inquiry.

In promoting the study of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States across a number of disciplines, the Department values the social relevance of academy-based knowledge production, as well as the connection between academia, the API community, and other disadvantaged social groups.
