CUNY Asian American/Asian Research Institute (AAARI)

The Asian American / Asian Research Institute (AAARI) was established on November 19, 2001, by The City University of New York (CUNY) Board of Trustees, in a resolution introduced by Chancellor Matthew Goldstein. The Institute is a university-wide scholarly research and resource center that focuses on policies and issues that affect Asians and Asian Americans. It covers four areas: Asian American Studies; East Asian Studies; South Asian Studies; and Trade & Technology Studies.

The City University of New York, with 23 colleges city-wide, is rich in faculty who have expertise in Asian and Asian American studies. As of Fall 2007, CUNY enrolled over 33,000+ Asian undergraduate students, and nearly 3,500 graduate students who will soon emerge as a vital segment of New York City’s workforce and leadership. Asians represents over 3,600 faculty and staff.

The Asian American/Asian Research Institute seeks to achieve the following:

  • to be an Asian intellectual and cultural center that addresses the  needs of New York’s diverse ethnic subgroups of Asian origin

  • to be a respected authority regionally, nationally, and internationally, on issues concerning Asia, and the Asian American community

  • to stimulate the study of Asian people, languages, cultures, and countries as well as Asian immigrants and their descendants who live in the U.S.

  • to bring together a community of scholars and channel their scholarship and research energies on Asia and the Asian American experience

  • to identify timely issues that affect the Asian and Asian American communities

  • to conduct scholarly, unbiased studies impacting policy and community concerns

  • to disseminate its research results and educate the public about  Asian and Asian American issues

  • to serve as a bridge between CUNY, and the Asian American community
