Celebrating 15 Years of Asian Studies at Berea!

Display sign for 15 years of asian studies“To commemorate the Asian Studies Program’s 15th anniversary, the Asian Studies Program, the Center for International Education, and the Hutchins Library staff have put together an exhibit of photographs, artifacts, books, and information now on display on the west side of Hutchins Library’s 2nd (entry-level) floor between the periodical and reference sections.

The exhibit will remain open for the rest of the spring term, and includes photos of Bereans whose paths have intersected with Asia over the years – from Dr. Bobby Fong (the first Asian-American ever to serve as a U.S. college president), who began his career at Berea in 1978, and President John B. Stephenson, whose friendship with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama cemented a bond between Berea and the Tibetan people, to other faculty, students, and alumni who have traveled, studied, and lived in Asia over the past 15 years. 

On February 12, join us for a celebratory reception from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the exhibit area.  Delicious Asian foods will be served, and you might even see your own face among the images on display!” – Dr. Jeff Richey
