Mission & Vision


The Asian American Cultural Center (AACC) plays a key role in ensuring the development and enhancement of Yale University’s commitment to the Asian and Asian American communities. The AACC seeks to build a dynamic Asian and Asian American presence at Yale, support student exploration of their identity development, and empower them to take an active role in shaping their learning experiences. The AACC is committed to engaging the Asian and Asian American student body, Yale University, and the greater New Haven community in the learning and celebration of cultures, traditions, and issues related to the varied experiences of the Asian diaspora. 


To cultivate a community of Asian and Asian American citizen scholars who are rooted in our shared histories and actively striving towards an anti-racist, equitable and just future for all. To co-create equitable learning environments that honor the wholeness of our community’s identities and experiences.
