This course was aimed to allow students to gain a fuller understanding of race, class, culture, diversity, and gender in U.S society, through the research on Asian American youth. Moreover, in conducting research related to Asian American youth on campus such as student organizations, sororities or fraternities, student housing life, religious life, and cultural houses, the course provided students with the opportunity to closely examine issues of student racial diversity at the University of Illinois.
