Mission: Our History The initiative for the establishment of the Asian Cultural Center (ACC) at Oregon State University started as early as 1980 and was officially established in 1990. The ACC gained its first space in 1990 in Snell Hall 131 and then moved to its former permanent space in 1991 at 2638 NW Jackson Street in the College Hill West Historic District. The Asian Cultural Center was renamed as the Asian & Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) in 2003 to be more inclusive of the Pacific Islander communities. The new Asian & Pacific Cultural Center located in the heart of campus at 2695 SW Jefferson Way, broke ground on May 5th, 2014 and officially opened to the general public on February 9th, 2015. The construction of the Asian & Pacific Cultural Center was supported by generous donors to The Campaign for OSU, the university’s first campus-wide fundraising initiative, as well as by the university, the OSU Foundation and the students of OSU through their student fees. Significant amount of support came from Joyce Collin Furman ’64 and the Meyer Memorial Trust. The Asian & Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) provides opportunities for on-campus and online students to mutually engage around the intersectional experiences of Asian and Pacific Islanders as they develop their sense of identity, academic interests and professional goals.
