Contributing to ASC

Your gift will allow the Asian Studies Center to continue to support students and faculty members in their voyages of research and discovery. This will allow them to give back by sharing their knowledge and expertise with the university, and the wider local and global communities. 

We rely on the generosity of students, faculty, alumni, and friends. Gifts of any amount are deeply appreciated. Your gift can be designated for a specific purpose such as undergraduate student travel, graduate student or faculty research, conferences, study abroad programs, or lecture series.  Unrestricted gifts are put where the needs are greatest.
