Asian American Cultural Center

Who We Are

The University of Illinois has one of the largest and most vibrant Asian American university communities in the Midwest, where almost 40% of students are of Asian descent. Opened in Fall 2005, the Asian American Cultural Center provides the University of Illinois community with space to gather and share experiences of our diverse and rich cultures. As a unit of the Office of Inclusion & Intercultural Relations, the AACC promotes cross-cultural understanding that supports the academic and personal growth of students, along with learning experiences that help shape a lifetime commitment to ethical and engaged citizenship.

OIIR & AACC Update

The Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations (OIIR) would like to update the University of Illinois community on its availability and offerings. All OIIR units operate in small physical spaces. As such, we are prioritizing the health and safety of our students, staff, faculty, and community members by continuing all programs virtually effective July 27 and until further notice. The only exception will be the limited hours, in which Confidential Advisors will be available for walk-in appointments for sexual misconduct survivor services at the Women's Resources Center.

  • All programming will be virtual, including events, workshops, meetings, and courses
  • Our staff will continue to be available for virtual meetings, consultations, and advising
  • Physical spaces are closed to the public (with survivor services exceptions)
  • For up-to-date information, please refer to our website, social media platforms, and subscribe to our e-newsletters
  • If you have any questions, please reach out at or 217-333-1300, or reach out to any of our eight units
