Mission Statement

NYC Asian American Student Conference (NYCAASC) falls under the jurisdiction of Asian Heritage Month at NYU, which is a club founded on the basis of the celebration of Asian Heritage at NYU. NYCAASC is an annual conference normally held at the Kimmel Center - it provides a unique space for NYU students to network with other students in an environment within which they are comfortable. The conference aims to provide a space for Asian Americans to discuss relevant issues in the API community, ranging from socioeconomic discussions to cultural explorations. NYCAASC brings together hundreds of attendees through a series of workshops and performances, as well as a keynote speech by a leader in the Asian American community.

As part of its mission, NYCAASC aims to be as accessible as possible - NYCAASC does not charge admission prices. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NYCAASC 2021 will be held virtually. The livelihood of the conference depends on the generosity of community members and organizations. We would truly appreciate any financial support folks could provide. 

The theme for this year’s conference is SNAPSHOTS

“Our conference this year is underscored by the fact that our current moment is a snapshot of a larger context. As Asian Americans, we are interested in connecting current events and social trends with past cultural and political movements and the legacy of Asians in America. With not only the pandemic, but police brutality, natural disasters, and revolutions occurring worldwide, we find ourselves looking for ways to make sense of ourselves and the world around us. While the past is the reason for our present, the future is dictated by our actions today, and as students and as citizens of the world, we want to move beyond passive understanding and have an active hand in shaping our future.
