The Asian World Center celebrated Creighton’s 17th Annual Asian Culture Week from April 4 through April 8, 2022. The theme of this week-long event was “Tragicomedy: China’s Environmental Crisis and Global Responsibility.” The event included photo/painting exhibitions, in-person and virtual presentations, luncheon and dinner roundtable discussions. Presentation topics include Creighton students’ perspective on global responsibility in time of crisis, Asian response to Russia’s war on Ukraine, China’s environmental crisis, and the challenge of a super-aging society to Japanese economy.
The 17th Asian Culture Week was organized by the Asian World Center with support from Creighton College of Arts and Science, Creighton Heider College of Business, the China Institute of the University of Dayton and the Nanjing University of the Arts of China. The Asian World Center acknowledges with gratitude the funding from the University Non-Western Studies Program, and sponsorship from Department of Philosophy and Department of Political Science and International Relations at Creighton University.
