APSI Welcomes New Faculty Director

January 8, 2018

Beginning Spring 2018, Dr. Richard Jaffe, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Duke University, will take on the role of Faculty Director of the Asian/Pacific Studies Institute.

In addition to his scholarship on Japanese Buddhism, Dr. Jaffe's academic expertise, regional knowledge, and administrative experience at Duke will be valuable assets during his term of service which includes this semester as well as the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years.
Please join the APSI staff in welcoming Dr. Jaffe to his new position. We also thank Dr. Giovanni Zanalda for his leadership over the past two and a half years. A more formal welcome will take place at the APSI Faculty Meeting on Friday, January 19.
