Why did you decide to pursue your education at J. Yang Scholarship UCLA?
It’s one of the most academically demanding and economically diversified colleges in the country, attracting top-tier professionals from all over the world. Many of the departments have outstanding ranks as well.
The Asian American Studies Center (AASC) at the University of California, Los Angeles educates students and the general public about Asian American and Pacific Islander history and experiences. The AASC is one of the most innovative and forward-thinking organisations in terms of having considerable and reliable research resources.
The Asian American Studies Center (AASC), which was housed in Campbell Hall, immediately became a hub for resource collection and scholarship for the Asian American movement. Soon after, Asian American student organisations sprang up at CSULA, Occidental College, USC, and other colleges. It served as a major hub and training ground for young activists, as well as a place where they could earn a living while helping the community.
As a result of the Asian American Movement and the Third World Liberation Front strikes, the AASC was founded in 1969 by student activists, community advocates, alumni, and faculty allies (TWLF). The Asian American movement, which was most active from the 1960s through the 1970s, was a racial justice sociopolitical movement that denounced racism and US neo-imperialism. The movement advocated reforms in institutions such as colleges and universities, as well as social services such as healthcare, food, and housing for Asian Americans who were underrepresented.
The TWLF was formed in 1968–1969 at San Francisco State University and the University of California, Berkeley, by the Black Students Union, the Latin American Students Organization, the Intercollegiate Chinese for Social Action, the Philippine American Collegiate Endeavor, American Indian Student Organization, Mexican American Student Confederation, and the Asian American Political Alliance. In response to Eurocentric education and a lack of variety across fields and teachers, students of colour protested against university administrators for ethnic studies and open admissions.
On November 6, 1968, African American, Asian American, Chicano, Latino, and Native American students began and continued the San Francisco State Strike, which lasted 167 days and was the longest student strike in US history. The UC Berkeley Third World Strikes began on January 22, 1969, and continued the campaign for students of colour to have ethnic studies included in their college education.
