Picture of Karen Suyemoto I believe that the particular skills and abilities I have enable me to best enact my commitment to contributing to social justice through the kinds of teaching, scholarship, and community coaction (collaboration, leadership, and service) that are enabled in my current academic position. Given my particular background, interests, and current position (a split-line between Clinical Psychology and Asian American Studies), I focus that commitment and application of skills on social justice and empowerment particularly for Asian Americans.

I also believe that one foundation of social justice is honesty and transparency of motivation. Thus, in the following pages you will find not only the usual descriptions of my teaching, scholarship, and community coaction activities, but also my reflections on intention and purpose. These are, of course, always a work in progress. I welcome your feedback on my work.
