The Asian Studies Center is Western Pennsylvania’s regional resource for research, teaching, learning and building connections about Asia.  Through 106 affiliated faculty with expertise spanning the academic disciplines, we foster multidisciplinary academic programming and community engagement.  Founded in 1969, the Center is widely recognized as one of the best and most comprehensive in the country for programs in Chinese and Japanese language and culture studies, with growing strengths in Indian and Korean studies.
