Come speak to representatives on the search committee for our next Chief Diversity Officer (CDO). As the person directly responsible for overseeing the cultural centers, it’s crucial that we voice our opinions on the decision of who this person should be. Tell these reps what you are looking for in the next CDO!

SECOND ROUND OF ONLINE VOTING OPENS *TODAY* Show your support for Raven and Angelique by going to to cast your Homecoming Royalty vote and get them to the pageant! We can’t do it without you. Tell all your friends and your friends’ friends!!!! ...


Angelique is a Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences major and former Secretary of the Filipino American Student Association under AsACC. She works for UConn Foundation as a fundraiser and actually raised the most money for the University last 2018-2019 school year. Talking to Alumni and friends of the University is her thing. She’s trying to help keep UConn’s prestige as one of the top 25 public institutions in the nation. Go huskies!!


Here at UConn, Raven is a captain of the UConn Cheerleading Team and has been for two years. His passion for cheerleading has allowed him to show his charisma and passion on both the field and court. Raven is also a brother of Lambda Phi Epsilon International Fraternity Inc. (an Asian-interest fraternity on campus) and serves as the External Vice President. Through Lambdas, Raven has immersed himself into the Asian and Asian-American community at UConn and has grown to find his true home away from home.


Geli: After I became more involved in AsACC, I got introduced to Angela Rola, who quite literally has helped shape me into the strong, confident leader I am today. The reason I decided to run was because I figured I could be the one to give people a voice. It was through that empowerment that I found a purpose— believing in something and being unapologetic about it!

Raven: I came to UConn both as a transfer student and athlete. Because of my busy schedule, I didn’t fully immerse myself into AsACC as much as I would've liked. Being so involved outside of AsACC, I want to use my candidacy as a platform to represent our cultural center and give it the recognition it deserves to the rest of the UConn community.


Hello everyone! My name is Angelique, but everyone in AsACC calls me ‘Geli.’ I’m Filipino-American repping our cultural center because everyone deserves to know what AsACC is all about. All of the cultural centers provide us with the resources to feel comfortable and successful. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. It just might change your life!

Here is our schedule from March 30- May 8 and we hope to see you often!

AsACC News and Updates:

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Latest Updates

[Posted April 2, 2020]

[Posted March 17, 2020]

Per President Katsouleas’ announcement this afternoon (3/17) all AsACC events for the remainder of the spring semester are cancelled and the AsACC will be closed. Although we are unable to observe Asian American Heritage Month in April together, we will post information about documentaries, articles, books and relevant information about Asian America so you can be part of our virtual celebration.

To our seniors: we are particularly sad that the end of the semester festivities to honor you (Senior Banquet, KUBE, PAC) cannot be held. As the President stated, we will figure out a way to have you back to honor and celebrate you and your accomplishments. We certainly have been the beneficiaries of your contributions to the AsACC.

If you need any assistance or have any questions as we transition to online classes, please let us know. The professional staff will be working remotely during normal work hours and can be reached at our individual e-mails or through our general e-mail at .

Please check our calendar of events or AsACC's Facebook for details.

Stay safe and healthy and continue to practice all the recommended steps to protect yourself.

Per President Katsouleas’ latest announcement of 3/11 @ 9:15pm, all AsACC events from 3/14- 4/5 will be cancelled including:

    • Our annual Asian Nite (3/28)
    • Chai Time (4/1)
    • UConn Bound Day & KUBE (4/4)
    • The New Mentor AMP retreat will be rescheduled to 4/19 and details will be sent to all mentors.
    • We have also decided to cancel our keynote speaker for Asian American Heritage Month on Tuesday, 4/7 but all other events later in April will hopefully be held.

This is unprecedented and we want everyone to put their health and safety as top priority.  If you need any assistance or have any questions as we transition to online classes, please let us know. 

The Asian American Cultural Center will be closed. The professional staff will be online during normal work hours during that time if you need to reach out. Contact us at .
