Why We Need Your Support


The Department of Asian Languages and Cultures (ALC) is student-centered and driven by research that is integrated into the classroom. We encourage students to study Asia from regional and comparative perspectives, while also cultivating scholarly engagement with specific cultures of Asia. India, China, Thailand, Korea, Japan — all of these cultures and more are part of what we study through our majors in Chinese or Japanese, and more broadly through our Asian languages and cultures major. Languages are a major focus for our teaching and research, with an opportunity to study more than a dozen languages in ALC. ALC has grown, and will continue to grow, with the addition of new faculty members, the renewal of federal funds to support teaching languages, and the recent creation of the Shri Anantnath Chair in Jain Studies. To meet the needs of new programs and growing numbers of staff, and especially to support our students, the department is increasingly relying on external gifts and donations.
