Ray Zeng, director of programs and key initiatives of the Committee of 100, will present From Foundations to Frontiers: Chinese American Contributions to the Fabric of America, an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) report that has been commissioned by the Committee of 100. Built on unique data development, analysis, and economic modeling, expert interviews, and literature reviews, the report examines 175 years of Chinese American contributions to, and challenges within, the U.S. society. Committee of 100 has turned the report into a series of campus discussions giving the highlights of the content, and then 'opening the floor' for a discussion on how the Chinese American and AAPI community can move forward.

Brought to you in partnership with the William & Mary Alumni Association and William & Mary Asian Centennial.
