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.
