Asian World Center

Asian World Center


Since its founding in 2006, the Center has stood to develop and foster a bridge between Asia and the Western World.  Located on the Campus of Creighton University in Omaha, NE, the Center hosts events, lectures, and presentations by distinguished guests who work on the front lines of East-West affairs.  In bringing these two world views together for the students and community, and in the Center's rigorous scholarship and pursuit of academic programs, the end goal is to make the world a closer connected and more harmonious place for us all.
