So you're studying Asian American Studies in graduate school. Has anyone ever asked, "what are you going to do with THAT?"  Learn how to answer this question at a FREE upcoming one-day graduate student conference "What Can I Do With Asian American Studies?"

We will be featuring career and real world-centered workshops by some of today's leaders in Asian America, who were in similar shoes as yourself in the not-so-distant past.  Also, all participants will be placed into breakout groups with peers from different universities. Everyone is encouraged to bring something that you're currently working on in order to give/receive constructive feedback from new sets of eyes. This will be a great opportunity to network!  If you have any questions, comments, suggestions,  or concerns, please contact Dean at dean.adachi@cgu.edu
