Center for Southeast Asian and Asian American Studies

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies at California State University at Fresno, was established in the Spring of 1995. The Center for Southeast Asian Studies is a multi-disciplinary unit designed to help foster a greater awareness of Southeast Asia at the university. The development of the Southeast Asian Center has been ranked a priority in the agenda of the University future plan.

The Southeast Asian people in the Valley, in particular people from Laos, are one of the fastest growing communities, and yet they are the least understood cultural groups in the region. The Center will help to build a bridge of understanding between these different groups and other communities. The Center's scholarly activities will bring appreciation and respect for Southeast Asia to the campus community, as well as contribute to the empowerment of the Southeast Asian students, the future leaders of their communities.
