Congratulations to Professor Russell Jeung, who has been awarded the Association of Asian American Studies "Engaged Scholar" Award. This annual award goes to Asian American Studies faculty who have applied their scholarship for the "public good" by addressing inequalities in our society and improving the AAPI community. Professor Jeung was recognized for his work in bringing students to conduct research with underserved communities.

On January 24, the San Francisco Unified School District board voted unanimously to rescind San Francisco’s anti-Asian school policies dating as far back as 1871, all of which have never been rescinded. Commissioners Emily M. Murase and Stevon Cook co-presented the resolution with community support and speakers from TACT (The Association of Chinese Teachers), the Association of Asian American Administrators (AAAA), the National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS), and the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL).
ASPIRE is a collaboration between the Asian American Studies [http://aas.sfsu.edu/] department and the Student Affairs & Enrollment Management [http://www.sfsu.edu/~vpsa/] cabinet area. ASPIRE has been designed to address and promote college access and success by identifying and removing institutional barriers for high-need Asian American and Pacific Islander students.
