Transforming education, research, community service and the arts as they relate to Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.
The Asian American Studies Center (AASC) at UCLA is one of the largest and most comprehensive centers of its kind in the nation.
Since its founding in 1969, Asian American Studies Center has worked to educate the public about the rich history of this diverse nation. It has interrogated exclusionary policies and violent actions taken against migrants, asylum seekers, and other vulnerable communities throughout history. We have done this so that there may be greater understanding and respect for one another across our differences, seeing that education can carve paths towards a more just and inclusive future.
Today, with dedication and passion, the Asian American Studies Center continues to develop transformational ideas that push new movements forward and create a better world. The center has played a critical role as an active partner with Southern California’s infrastructure of social service agencies, civil rights organizations, museums, historical societies, media and cultural groups, and business associations to serve and support the Asian American and Pacific Islander populations. Through the center’s programs in research, teaching, leadership development, publications and other endeavors, we have created partnerships, collaborations and exchanges with people around the world– making an impact on Asian and Pacific Islander communities globally.
Giving to the Asian American Studies Center supports life-changing research, events relevant to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, scholarships and support for students, and more.
