 A veteran of the student strike that catalyzed the development of the Ethnic  Studies Department and the Asian American Studies program, Harvey Dong is awarded the Ronald T. Takaki Teaching Award for his creative and vital contributions to the American Cultures (AC) curriculum over a sustained period. His active role in helping to protect Asian immigrant labor and housing rights as well as a series of community-engaged scholarship courses are reflective of the ‘revolutionary tools’ that Professor Takaki viewed as essential in the creation of a socially just multiracial future.
