Since its founding in 1969, the UCLA Asian American Studies Center has documented, analyzed, and forecasted the contemporary, historical, and future experiences and concerns of people of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage in the United States through an array of scholarly, policy-oriented, applied, and creative forms of inquiry. It fulfills this mission through sponsored research projects; the development of affiliated research institutes; support for individual faculty members; collaborative research and creative projects with campus and community organizations, museums, and leaders; publications and other media; archival and data-collection activities; and the training of new scholars, policy analysts, and creative artists.
