Statement From President Raab on Violence Against Asian Americans

Statement by Chancellor Matos Rodriguez on the Deadly Shootings in Atlanta


Asian American Studies, More Vital Than Ever

 

During these challenging times, education is more important than ever -- we highlight the work of our Hunter faculty affiliates and adjunct faculty in Asian American Studies. In addition to anti-Asian American hate, our work spans the professional workplace, immigrant labor, LGBTQ, and the arts. For more information see our full list of amazing Faculty and Affiliates

Kudos to Keith Chan (Social Work), who has recently been named as a National Health and Aging Policy Fellow. And to Margaret Chin, whose book Stuck:  Why Asian Americans Don't Reach the Top of the Corporate Ladder has received the 2021 PROSE Award in the Business, Finance & Management Category.

And read John Chin's report to better understand the pathways for Chinese and Korean immigrant women into the illicit massage parlor sector and how this work is a labor rights issue and part of the larger immigrant story of survival - Illicit Massage Parlors in Los Angeles County and New York City: Stories from Women Workers. See the work of Van Tran, Hunter College Alum (2004), who wrote about Asian Americans and the bamboo ceiling

Statement From President Raab on Violence Against Asian Americans


The appalling outbreak of targeted violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders here in New York and elsewhere in our country must stop immediately. Speaking for the entire Hunter College family, we condemn it in the strongest possible terms and urge that every resource available to the city, state, and federal governments be marshaled to prevent it. Such cruelty is simply intolerable in this proud nation of immigrants. We are reminded again that we must vigilantly protect the rights of people of all backgrounds and resist any and all attempts to pit people against each other, or unconscionably scapegoat individuals or groups as we emerge from this painful year of social isolation.

Here at Hunter College, proud home of the Asian-American Studies Program and Center and the Hunter College AANAPISI Project (HCAP), we treasure our campus-wide dedication to opportunity for all-a tradition that began at our founding in 1870. By celebrating diversity and inclusion, we condemn discrimination. By defending the rights and safety of all we truly live up to our motto: "Mihi cura futuri, the care of the future is mine."
