Yukiko Vossen plays the koto – Japanese harp – at the annual Asian Studies Focus Award celebration, which took place at the Sylvania Campus on May 20. After a welcome from Campus President Linda Gerber, students and faculty celebrated their successes from the past year with speeches and honors, followed by a reception and Vossen’s performance. PCC’s Asian Studies Program seeks to foster a richer understanding and appreciation of the cultures of Asia. Sixteen credits from a variety of courses can culminate in an Asian Studies Focus Award, which shows prospective employer, and four-year universities and colleges a student’s foundational focus on Asia. The program encourages broader reflections about the nature of culture and how it shapes everything from world views to daily life.
