The number of Asian faculty is steadily growing at CWRU. Representing many distinct ethnic and cultural backgrounds, they enrich the university with their diverse perspectives. Their contributions are a tremendous value to the CWRU and Cleveland communities.
On the other hand, Asian faculty members also face particular needs and challenges in their career development and growth. This concern was highlighted by a recent CWRU-wide faculty satisfaction survey. The data indicate that Asian faculty holds strong reservations and concerns for career advancement and promotion within CWRU. The Asian Faculty Association (AFA) was formed as an organization for faculty members to help each other and the institution leadership address some of these needs and concerns.
The mission of AFA is to provide a formal networking platform for Asian faculty to foster their growth –personal and professional. The AFA will also serve as the voice to represent and advocate for its members; and to increase the awareness of issues specific to the Asian faculty community.
