AARCC offers:

  • Individual Consultation – personal support and guidance on a variety of Asian American issues including academic, cultural, and professional concerns.
  • Advising for Organizations – support and consultation for campus Asian American organizations on matters related to event coordination, organizational issues, and leadership development.
  • Consultation – consultation for UIC administrators, faculty, and staff, campus offices and academic departments regarding policies, practices, programs, and activities that serve Asian Americans.
  • Presentations – workshops, trainings, and presentations for classes, organizations, and other offices to provide education for and about Asian Americans.

Located in Room 101 of Taft Hall (826 South Halsted Street), AARCC offers a modest yet lively space where students, staff, and faculty can use computers, take a break and engage with others, study with student peers, borrow from our lending library, and seek advice, guidance, and resources.

In addition, AARCC offers social, cultural, and educational programs that promote knowledge of and foster engagement with issues relating to Asian Americans and Asian American studies. Our co-curricular programs enhance the UIC experience and provide opportunities for integrated learning and development. We collaborate and consult with other campus units to ensure that the needs of Asian American students are met. In line with the Great Cities Commitment, AARCC cultivates connections between UIC and Chicago’s Asian American communities, serving as a resource for the campus to engage with off-campus Asian American organizations.  AARCC is open to all members of the UIC campus and the surrounding community who have an interest in issues relevant to Asian Americans.

Some of AARCC’s programs and services have been enhanced by the UIC AANAPISI Initiative.
