“Since its establishment in 1999, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the Asian American Cultural Center. This anniversary affords us an opportunity to reflect on our major milestones over the past 20 years and celebrate its growth and continued efforts to honor our mission in supporting Asian Pacific Islander Desi American students and building a more inclusive campus community at Rutgers University –New Brunswick.
Many thanks to the incredible students, staff, and community that has been so supportive over the years. We are excited for what comes next as our greatest accomplishments still lie ahead of us.”
Vision: We envision a vibrant community of students committed to learning, preserving, and embracing the traditions, culture, and unique experiences of the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American diaspora at Rutgers University and community at large.
