NYU To Host "Asians in the Ivory Tower" Forum

NEW YORK - New York University will host a forum titled “Asians in the Ivory Tower: America’s Equity Agenda and the Blurring of the Color Line in Higher Education” on Wednesday, April 6, 5:30 p.m., at NYU’s Kimmel Center for University Life.

The event is co-sponsored by NYU’s Steinhardt Institute for Higher Education Policy, NYU’s Asian/Pacific/American Institute, and the NYU Multicultural Alumni Group.

Speakers include: Kiran Ahuja, executive director of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and UCLA Professor Walter Allen as well as Pedro Noguera and Robert Teranishi, professors at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.

At the event, the panel will discuss recent research on Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) college students, connect these findings to a deeper understanding of race and race relations in American higher education, and discuss the implications of this work to research, practice, and policy. One of the most urgent challenges facing the United States in the 21st century is increasing the proportion of Americans with a postsecondary credential to meet the growing needs and changing demands of a global economy. This can only be achieved through the participation of all Americans, including underrepresented racial minority groups, low-income students, immigrants, and language minorities. It is within this context that this panel highlights the relevance of the AAPI student population –a large and growing segment in higher education that is often overlooked, underserved, and fundamentally misunderstood.
