Asian American Cultural Affairs
Asian American Cultural Affairs is committed to working closely with students, faculty, and staff, and its student organization to advocate for Asian American interests, concerns, and needs. The office also provides resources for individual empowerment and success; builds community; and creates social, cultural, and educational programming for and about the Asian American experience.
The office works to provide you with a place for exploration of identity issues, opportunities for mentoring, and the development of leadership skills, while supporting your personal and academic achievements, especially regarding student contributions to the arts and media.
For us, Asian-American can mean many things: Southeast Asian, West Asian (Arab or Middle-Eastern), South Asian, East Asian, Pacific Islander, Central Asian, Hapa and those who identify as multi-racial. We want students to understand that Asian and the Pacific Islands stretches from the Philippines to Palestine, and Hawa’ii to the United States.
We hope as we define ourselves we are able to share our experiences as a collective and move forward as a diverse generation of evolving artists, innovators, and educators!
