The AAC Campaign Team (February 2020)


The Asian American Center Campaign is a team of students dedicated to realizing the dream of an Asian American Center here on UNC’s campus. Joining with alumni and with key support from staff, faculty, and administrators, students raised awareness and funds, resulting in the swift authorization of the Center in 2020. Their work continues to support the Center’s endowment. Applications are welcomed at announced windows to join the team.
