Join us in making history at Carolina! Since 1994, Asian American student activists have fought for permanent on-campus resources, dedicated staff members, and a physical space on campus for all students to learn about and engage with Asian American identities. In 2019, 25 years later, this dream was partially realized with the approval of the Asian American Center by the Board of Trustees and endorsement by the UNC-CH Office of the Provost. This center is primed to impact generations to come, but there’s still a long way to go to make this dream a reality – we need your help! It’s time.
