Dr. Omatsu with students at the Asian American Open House, 2003

"Asian American Studies is important for its role in transforming education from existing models; serving needs of communities; and changing relations of power in society."

Glenn Omatsu is a Lecturer in Asian American Studies and the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), where he works with first-generation freshmen from low-income families. He also serves as coordinator of the Faculty Mentor Program and the College of Humanities Peer Mentor Project. He is active with community and labor groups and solidarity networks.

"My first experience with Asian American Studies was doing solidarity work for the SF State student strike in 1968."
