Established in 1998, the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies (IDAAS) provides a rich academic program to all students at the Claremont Colleges (Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps.) IDAAS has thirteen core faculty and offers interdisciplinary undergraduate majors and minors in Asian American Studies. Carrying forward the community-based origins of Asian American Studies, we provide innovative opportunities such as the Margo Okazawa-Rey Summer Fellowship, creative and community-based theses, the Peter Kiang Thesis Prize, and the Merle Woo Project Prize.
