|Title:||The Great Divide|
|Abstract:||Our Research project was designed to explore whether there was a divide in Asian Americans within the church and the Greek System. Furthermore, we examined the reasons as to why the divide existed, if there were any. Through our research, we interviewed many Asian American Greek members as well as church members. In addition, each of the group members observed church functions and social setting as well as Greek ones. Our research has shown that a divide between the two groups at had do indeed exist. We have found that this divide exists for 3 main reasons, which are the different mission statements of both groups, conflicting time commitments, and the misconceptions held by both groups of each other.|

Professor Soo Ah Kwon
Asian American youth make up one of the fastest growing populations in the United States. In this course we explored the ways that second-generation Asian American youth are actively shaping the U.S. landscape in terms of identity formation, youth culture, education, and activism. These experiences are examined within larger historical, economic, racial, social and political forces in the United States.
