Meet the ASAM Team

"Many Asian American students who are in college now have had ZERO opportunity to learn about their histories. (Yet) research shows that when students, especially students of color, are offered culturally relevant curriculum, this has a positive impact on student academic engagement, achievement and empowerment--particularly when linked with culturally responsive teaching, grounded in high academic expectations."

– Dawn Lee Tu, Ph.D., Faculty Director, Office of Professional Development, De Anza College
