AACC to celebrate 40th anniversary with teach-in, alumni panel and digital history showcase

Four decades ago, roughly 100 Asian American students — at that point about a third of the total Asian American population enrolled in Yale College — met with then-Yale president Bart Giamatti to fight for a space of their own on campus, beyond a few rooms in the basement of Bingham Hall.

Students gather at the AACC after its opening.
