Emory Report | March 15, 2016

Emory's annual Pan-Asian Experience Summit will take place Saturday, March 26, beginning at 10:30 a.m. in Cox Hall Ballroom. This year's theme is "Deep Roots, Lasting Growth."

The summit, which is part of the Office of Multicultural Programs and Services, focuses on continuing dialogues within Pan-Asian communities. It is organized by students, but you do not need to be a student to attend. Register by March 23 to attend the free event.

"Pan-Asian encompasses the mobilization of a broader conception of all Asian, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander identities, all while being mindful of each ethnic group's particulars with regard to immigration, displacement, colonialism and settlement," summit organizers explain.

Featured speakers include Allen Gee, professor at Georgia College; Victoria Huynh, vice president of the Center for Pan-Asian Services; Marian Liou, founder of WeLoveBuHi; and Grace Nichols, LGBTQ program coordinator at Georgia College.
