P.E.A.R.L. Institute trains, conducts, and supports researchers involved in the generation and dissemination of knowledge in comparative studies contributing to service for Asian-Pacific Islander populations. Evidence-based, culturally relevant studies in diverse AAPI groups are needed for practitioners to comprehensively serve these communities and to ensure equitable service outcomes. Research on curriculum development, with a specific focus on an East-West cultural integration and training manual development for specific areas of practice, is encouraged. Research projects can be fully or partially funded through grants provided by the Institute.


Conference/Symposium Development
In collaboration with major universities and research institutes internationally, we have developed international conferences in New York, Toronto, Taiwan, China, Vietnam and Cambodia with various topics under the themes of evidence-based evaluation and practice, social work clinical competence, social policy, children and family services, and more.

At this stage, P.E.A.R.L. Institute is promoting its international conference development with emphasis on cross-cultural integration, effective evidence-based service delivery, and the application of digital knowledge in social work education.

Universities and organizations are encouraged to contact the Institute for future conference collaboration.
