Asian American Program

Vision

The Asian American Program (AAP) at Princeton Theological Seminary seeks to be a rich and lively program that bears witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ, enriched by the distinctiveness and diversity of the Asian and Asian-American contexts. Our vision is to uphold Princeton Theological Seminary’s mission of equipping women and men for leadership worldwide, by embracing Asian and Asian-American culture and studies as a gateway to intellectual integrity and breadth necessary for ministry in a global context.

In our call to witness the love of Jesus Christ in concrete educational contexts, AAP aims to develop educational opportunities for Princeton Seminary students in cross-cultural ministry with Asian and Asian-American communities. Moreover, it is our intent to develop international colloquiums and seminars among Asian and Asian-American scholars, pastors, and Christian leaders for the larger Princeton Seminary community. In addition, we will work with Seminary partners to recruit prospective students from both the U.S. and Asian countries in order to nurture a multicultural learning community.
