ASP is an umbrella program rather than a department, meaning that it draws on the resources of many departmentally-based faculty to teach the courses in the program. The strength of Asian Studies at Northwestern lies in the number and quality of the faculty who are Asian specialists, the variety of courses they offer, the scholarly resources of the library, and the many visiting speakers. In addition, students enjoy the off-campus educational resources of Chicago, including the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum, and Asian drama and musical productions that periodically pass through Chicago. Chicago also offers many Asia- related recreational activities, notably restaurants, movie theaters, and stores specializing in Asian products.Northwestern faculty and administrators are involving more students in the search for the next dean of the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences after students voiced concerns about their lack of involvement in the process at an open forum in October.A student interview group, chosen by the Weinberg College Student Adv...

The inaugural class, which met for the first time in November 1855, consisted of ten young men, each of whom was required to be at least fifteen years of age. While women were not admitted to the University until 1869, by 1900 women represented fully one-half of Northwestern’s undergraduate student body.
