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. 

Recent News from the AACC:

We are excited to announce the new Satoda Scholars Program at the Asian American Cultural Center. Thanks to a generous gift from Mr. Yonekazu Satoda and his family, 2017 marks the inaugural year of the AACC Satoda Scholars Program. The Asian American Cultural Center Satoda Scholarship awards research grants to undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students to conduct original research related to Japanese American Internment and Incarceration Studies more broadly. This year, Satoda Scholars will be selected to serve as the inaugural cohort and each awarded $500 in research funding. Yale undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students are eligible. More information can be found at http://aacc.yalecollege.yale.edu/satoda-scholars-program.
