Welcome to the AACC

Established in 1981, the Asian American Cultural Center (AACC) exists to build and sustain a supportive Asian and Asian American community at Yale. Our central purpose is to enrich student life while providing a physical space to blend academic inquiry with cultural experience. 

We sponsor 50+ affiliate groups for students—both undergraduate and graduate–plus dozens of campus-wide events. Our team of staffers is responsible for dreaming up new programming and launching creative activities that celebrate Asian culture and heritageWe are passionate about championing the intellectual, social, and political fabric of Asian American identity, and we’d love for you to join us.
