The Importance of Asia in the Liberal Arts

In response to recent financial pressures at member colleges, the ASIANetwork Board of Directors drafted a document titled, The Importance of Asia in the Liberal Arts. The purpose of the document is to help faculty members communicate the value of teaching about Asia to administrators, faculty committees, students, and other constituencies, especially during this time of budget cuts, faculty reductions, and retrenchment. 

We hope you will find this document useful, and we welcome suggestions for improving it. Please send them to Gary DeCoker.
