CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – A virtual kickoff marks the official beginning of the Asian American Center at UNC-Chapel Hill.
“The Asian American Center isn’t just for Asian people who want to explore their identity.
“Coming into Carolina, I had this really strong desire to explore my Asian American identity, but I didn’t know where to go,” says Chen, a Cary native.
Though many Asian student groups exist at UNC, the center will be the first to have a central location with a dedicated staff and university resources devoted to building a sense of support and belonging.
Somewhere they can connect with their culture and feel more welcome at Carolina,” says Brianna Li, the center’s co-director of strategic communications.
