On February 14, 1984, the Student Senate approved the charter of a new organization, the Asian Student Association. Why did students feel the need to create such an organization at Luther College at that time? And why has this organization changed in the forty years since then? Associate Professor of History Brian Caton offers an answer to these questions, drawing on archival work and oral interviews conducted in summer 2022 as part of a student-faculty collaborative research project. Drinks and snacks will be served.
