Advisory Committee

The Group in Asian Studies is supervised by a Faculty Advisory Committee consisting of representatives of the four regional subdivisions (South and Southeast Asia are options only at the graduate level). The committee members are faculty from academic departments of the university who serve the Group voluntarily. Positions rotate informally among those whose teaching and research center on Asia. One member of the committee acts as the Chair and Head Adviser of the Group. It is chaired by Professor Bonnie C. Wade from the Department of Music.
