The Asian American Center, founded in 2020, is on a mission to cultivate a critical understanding of Asian American peoples, cultures, and histories. Through education, organization, and advocacy, the AAC engages and empowers Asian American students, faculty, and staff and the greater Carolina community. Along with this, the AAC enhances the University’s commitment to excellence by expanding access to interdisciplinary learning and preparing the next generation of leaders for an increasingly multicultural society.
With your help, we were able to open our doors virtually in September and have already held several virtual events with hundreds of attendees! Now, you can help us create a physical home on campus for current and future Asian American students, as well as all who want to learn more about this vibrant community.
You can maximize the impact of your gift by helping us take advantage of our challenge matches throughout the day. Gifts of any amount will create impact on our University community and make this a Center like no other. A gift of $2,500 by June 30, 2021 will allow us to include your name on our Donor Wall when the Center’s space/home opens in Fall 2021.
Together, we can support Carolina’s growing Asian American student population and educate the next generation of inclusive leaders in North Carolina and around the globe.
Our New Home
The Asian American Center is in the process of renovating and preparing a warm and welcoming space where the campus community can drop in to converse and learn. This house will become a home away from home for Asian American Tar Heels and friends!
