Welcome to Asian American Studies
Content Section 2
The Department of Asian American Studies (AAS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to expanding the traditions of knowledge within academia to address Asian American epistemologies, activities, and experiences. The department also seeks to render scholarly intellectual efforts integral to those of local, regional, national, and international Asian American communities.
University of Illinois Announces Illinois Commitment
Beginning in the fall of 2019, incoming in-state freshmen and transfer students with a family income of less than $61,000 will be able to attend the University of Illinois free of tuition costs and campus fees. This commitment will markedly increase the number of Illinois families who will be able to afford higher education at a four-year university, and will promote a greater focus on academics and scholarly achievement in incoming students.
We at the Department of Asian American Studies are excited to see the University of Illinois taking such an immense step toward making higher education and quality scholarship accessible for families of all income levels. We applaud the University for the steps it has taken today, and look forward to the next developments in educational accessibility.
