Tanaka, Greg – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2009
Findings from a four-year action research project at a highly diverse, West Coast U.S. university reveal that a large percentage of white students cannot trace their identities to a particular nation in Europe and are, as a result, unable to name the shared meanings of a particular ethnic culture.

The under-representation of Asian American women in educational research and development is related to both sociocultural and historical barriers.

Hsia, Jayjia – 1985
Asian Americans are popularly stereotyped as possessing innate characteristics that enable them to achieve excellence in virtually all fields of endeavor.

Hassan, Thomas E. – College Board Review, 1987
Asian Americans are charging that the nation's most prestigious colleges are limiting their access with informal quotas.

Hamlen, Bard Rogers – 1994
In teaching Asian American literature on the college level, the first consideration is to try to choose works that dispel the dominant stereotypes. One of these stereotypes is the "otherness" myth that Asian American culture is very exotic, distant, mysterious, as in "the mysterious and far East." In reality, Asian Americans…

Quan, David – Journal of Legal Education, 1988
The economic strength of Asian Americans has not led to equal opportunity, particularly in the profession of law. For parity in the legal community, Asian Americans must overcome a history of discriminatory treatment, inherent biases in the system conflicting with Asian values, limited role perception, and little emotional support.
