“…to encourage innovative approaches to Asian studies teaching and research at the undergraduate level through the lens of the environment and sustainable development.” – The Henry Luce Foundation





In 2015, the Claremont Colleges received a grant from The Henry Luce Foundation’s Luce Initiative on Asian Studies and the Environment (LIASE) to launch EnviroLab Asia. The 2015-2016 academic year focused on the theme “From Land to Sea: Nature, Culture, and Asia’s Ecosystem.” The Co-Principal Investigators were Albert Park (CMC), Char Miller (Pomona), and Kyoko Kurita (Pomona).
