About the Lecture

——

This seminar addresses the challenges of Asian Americans in the United States and the model minority myth. The model minority myth has created stereotypical expectations for Asian Americans due to their relative economic and professional success and resulted in their exclusion from consideration as an underrepresented group in higher education diversity hiring initiatives. Asian Americans have been less successful than other minorities in attaining leadership roles, and hold only 2.3 percent of presidential positions in higher education. The lack of recognition of the covert and overt discrimination faced by Asian Americans has led to the invisibility of their challenges, exacerbated by the absence of a cohesive public voice and collective consciousness. The seminar offers recommendations for change and for building awareness of the behavioral and structural barriers faced by Asian Americans in the United States.
