2016 Conference on Asian American Leadership at CUNY and Higher Education

There is a remarkable absence of Asian Americans in the upper ranks of leadership at CUNY, and in higher education nationwide. AAARI will release the findings of its CUNY Asian American Leadership Initiative Report at this conference, and will address recommendations for outreach and recruitment, as well as development of the student and faculty pipeline for leadership.

This conference will focus on why there is a lack of Asian American leadership, best practices for recruitment and professional development, student leadership, tenure and promotion, as well as the importance of Asian American and Asian Studies in preparing and inspiring the next generation of Asian American Leaders.
