Asian American Cultural Center
The Asian American Cultural Center at Yale serves as a safe and welcoming space for students. AAAYA partners with the AACC to support current Yale students through fellowships, networking events and mentorship opportunities.
295 magazine is the result of a collaborative effort between the Asian American Cultural Center and the Yale Asian Womyn’s Alliance. The publication seeks to elevate the voices of Asian and Asian American student creatives at Yale by highlighting their poetry, prose, visual art, photography and music composition.

Support the AACC
The Dean Mary Li Hsu Discretionary Fund, named after the first AACC Director to also serve as an Assistant Dean for Yale College, is similarly managed by the Yale Investments Office. It was started by Deron Quon ‘94 and a group of other Asian American alumni in the Spring of 2021 in conjunction with the AACC’s 40th anniversary.
The endowment’s return will be used to fund various initiatives that support first-generation low-income Asian and Asian American Yale students, including, but not limited to, research and travel grants for professional development opportunities, as this population is steadily growing over these last few years.
Any excess funds will go towards supporting academic programs that promote Asian American Studies at Yale.
"As a former first generation student, this fund brings together access to so many educational options that I have cared deeply about. Your gifts allows that. You have done me a great honor by supporting the aspirations of Asian American students through the work of the Asian American Cultural Center. I see this fund, as a testament to the strength and spirit of the Yale Asian American community across generations."
