The Program has sponsored and co-sponsored lectures, conferences, panel discussions, film series, and cultural events on campus and within the broader Ithaca community. Program faculty have also been involved in University initiatives focused on various aspects of academic and student life, including taskforces that have examined the role of ethnic studies at Cornell and the campus climate as it relates to Asian Americans.
The Asian and Asian American Center (A3C)
Since 2009, the Asian and Asian American Center (A3C) has been a hub for student support and activities. The A3C, located at 626 Thurston Avenue in the former Alumni House, is a second home for Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander, and bi/multiracial undergraduate and graduate/professional students. It is a place that cares for them, advocates for them, celebrates them, and promotes their academic and personal success at Cornell University.
"In short, A3C is anything that you need it to be. It is a resource center for campus news and Asian and Asian American current events. It is a hub for student organizations to communicate with one another. It is a counseling center and a safe space in which to relax. And most importantly, it is open to all. The A3C brings together students of all backgrounds in the hopes of creating a more inclusive community here on campus." - Jack Yeh, 12
