The Asian American Resource and Cultural Center supports the needs of Asian Americans at UIC and offers social, cultural, and educational programs to those interested in expanding their knowledge about Asian Americans.

Starting July 20, 2021, AARCC staff will be available limitedly in 101 Taft Hall (and in Virtual AARCC) from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Virtual AARCC is still available for those who want to visit us remotely Monday through Friday.

Please note that staffing is limited during the summer, so it is suggested to call ahead to make sure someone is in 101 Taft Hall or visit Virtual AARCC.

As always, you can email us at or call 312-413-9569 and someone will respond as soon as possible.

To learn more about Virtual AARCC or our other programs, services, and events, please feel free to explore our website or read this message from the Director.
