Event Description:
Dr. Peter Nien-chu Kiang (江念祖) is Professor of Education and Director of the Asian American Studies Program at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where he has taught since 1987. Peter’s research, teaching, and advocacy in both K-12 and higher education with Asian American immigrant/refugee students and communities have been supported by the National Academy of Education, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Massachusetts Teachers Association, the Massachusetts Association for Bilingual Education, and others. At UMass Boston, he has received both the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award and Distinguished Service Award. Among many contributions to local communities, Peter served for six years as chair of the Massachusetts Advisory Committee for the US Commission on Civil Rights, and eight years as co-president of the Chinese Historical Society of New England. He holds a B.A., Ed.M., and Ed.D. from Harvard University and is a former Community Fellow in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT.

He is uniquely qualified to speak on the topic of Asian American Studies Perspectives on Health, Work, and Education, because of both his professional and personal experience.
