Intensive faculty and curriculum development workshops conducted by leading Asianists for part-time faculty in collaborating community colleges.

Inter-Cultural Assimilation and Conflict in East Asia is a shared professional development/curriculum development program for adjunt community college faculty in the humanities. Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, KS will focus on Japan while faculty at Philadelphia Community College in Philadelphia, PA will study China in exploring issues of assimilation and conflict among Asian peoples. The two-year project will include four 15-day workshops dedicated to an in-depth look at the historical, cultural, and social underpinnings of the program themes. The focus on adjunt faculty reflects both their importance in community college education and their limited professional development opportunities.
