Stepping East: Asian Studies at Calvin College

Endowment for an Asian Studies program, including faculty development, visiting scholars, a lectureship, course releases for faculty program administrators, acquisitions, and office staffing.

A $2 million endowment, to be raised in the context of a major capital campaign, will allow Calvin College to sustain and expand a quality Asian studies program that is designed to ensure consistent contributions to the study and appreciation of the humanities, student understanding of the importance of the history, philosophy, religion, languages, and literature of a major contributor to global culture, and faculty research and scholarship on key humanities themes in the Asian world. It will build on key accomplishments over the past eight years that have not only strengthened a major humanities program but also created tremendous momentum in curricular development, faculty scholarships, and exchange programs with China, Japan, and Korea.
