Visit the APCC Website!

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 1991. The ACC gained its first space in Snell Hall 131 and then moved to its former permanent space 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 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.
