Asian Center for Empowerment

The purpose of the Asian Center for Empowerment Cultural Center is to serve as a space that provides support, education, community and a meeting spot for primarily, but not exclusively, Asian, Asian American and South Asian students at MHC.

Asian Center for Empowerment (ACE) History
The Asian Center for Empowerment was officially opened on October 3rd 1998. It came about through the struggles of students for over a decade. The goal of empowerment focuses on keeping the Asian/Pacific Islander, South Asian, and Asian American history alive, and learning from and about each other’s perspective and heritage. Although the house is used by Asian, South Asian and Asian American ethnic, cultural and political organizations on campus, it also serves as meeting space, a support space and a space where people can gather and socialize.
