Dear colleagues,

I write to ask for nominees to two positions in the eight-member Board of
Directors of the Ateneo Center for Asian Studies (ACAS).  The terms of the
new members take effect immediately.  Fulltime faculty members who are
engaged in teaching and research on Asia (ie countries other than the
Philippines) are qualified.

Among the board’s functions are:

·       Articulate and review the center’s vision, mission and goal,

·       Recommend and review policy, programs and future directions.

The center’s flagship program is a biennial international conference that
has grown in prestige since it was initially held in September 2002.  The
eight conference was held in August 2016 and the next is set for 2018.
Selected papers are published in an anthology.  ACAS further promotes Asian
studies by hosting academics and other professionals conducting research
in the Philippines.  Moreover, ACAS fosters the learning and teaching of
Asian languages a
​s well as​
 encounters with Asian cultures.

Please email your nomination to a department chair, program director, or
the school dean by Friday, August 18.  Please include a brief description
of your nominee’s teaching, research, or interest in Asian Studies.  We
request the said school officials to forward the nominations to
acas.soss at ateneo.

Thank you, in anticipation of your nominations.
