Assyrian Academic Society

Website: http://www.aas.net/

The Assyrian Academic Society exists to build continuing and mutually beneficial relationships between its executive board, members, academic institutions and the Assyrian community at large. To this end, the AAS is devoted to strengthening its educational base within the Assyrian community through sponsorship of lectures, seminars, language classes, and academic conferences. Other intellectual pursuits include: publishing specialty books in the areas of history, culture and language; and the publication of its attendant periodical, the Journal of the Assyrian Academic Society (JAAS). The AAS is supported by a diverse group of professionals and students who enliven the AAS in its role to function more effectively as an Assyrian organization committed to serving and fulfilling its educational mission.
