The Asian Studies Development Program (ASDP) was launched in 1991 to enhance teaching about Asia at American two-year and four-year colleges and universities at the undergraduate level. In recent years, ASDP has also included Asian faculty in selected programs. Since its inception, more than 2,500 professors from the U.S. and Asia have participated in ASDP programs [read ASDP Mission here].

A joint program of the East-West Center and the University of Hawai‘i, ASDP offers a variety of content-focused faculty and institutional development programs and activities centered around summer residential institutes, field seminars in Asia, workshops on the U.S. mainland, and an annual academic conference
