Asian & Pacific Cultural Center


The Asian & Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) was established in Fall 2021. Nathan Nguyen, its inaugural program director, was hired in October 2021 to begin the development of a center dedicated to Asian & Pacific Islander student success at CSUDH.

The Asian & Pacific Cultural Center began providing in-person programs and services in Spring 2022. In Fall 2022, through student activism and conversations with campus leaders, a temporary space in WH 250 was designated for our center. In Spring 2023, we opened our doors to students and the campus community.
