The history of the Asian Center for Empowerment

The Asian Center for Empowerment was officially opened on October 3, 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 it also focuses on learning from and about each other’s perspectives and heritages. Although the house is used by Asian, South Asian and Asian American ethnic, cultural and political organizations on campus, it also serves as a meeting space, a support space and a space where people can gather and socialize.
