AsACC's Pan Asian Council A Project of Ignite 2017

A donation towards the Pan Asian Council and the Asian American Cultural Center is a donation towards: an award winning Homecoming, a motivating IMPAACT (Identifying the Missing Power of Asian Americans in Connecticut) leadership conference and an enthralling Asian Nite Showcase. The funds raised from IGNITE go directly toward these Pan Asian Council and AsACC sponsored events. If we raise more money than we need, the additional money will go towards the IMPAACT conference, Asian Nite Showcase and AsACC homecoming. Or if we don't meet this goal, the funds will go towards the IMPAACT conference, Asian Nite Showcase and AsACC homecoming. Each of these events serves the entire UConn community and are a great way for students to get involved, get inspired, and become leaders in their communities!

Homecoming is a campus-wide competition held at the beginning of Fall semester to kick off the Homecoming season! Homecoming events include the Homecoming royalty pageant, Lip Sync dance competition, parade and banner competition. The funds from IGNITE go toward building various props and costumes for the AsACC homecoming participants. AsACC has been Homecoming reigning champions for the past four years. Homecoming is a great way to kick start the school year and we are excited for the next challenge!

The PAC and AsACC festivities don't end with Homecoming. Every November PAC hosts its annual IMPAACT Leadership Conference. IMPAACT stands for Identifying the Missing Power of Asian Americans in Connecticut and this leadership conference is open to the entire student body. With an annual attendance of over 100 students each year, this leadership conference allows students to identify their strengths and empowers student leaders to learn how to navigate the academic and professional world. It's a leadership conference by leaders for leaders.

The Pan Asian Council and AsACC sponsor Asian Nite. Each February PAC and AsACC coordinate a night of performances featuring many of the Pan Asian Council's student organizations. AsACC and PAC are PACked with talent. Last year's Asian Nite included modern dance, singing, traditional dance and fusion performances representing Asian and Asian American culture.

By supporting PAC and AsACC you are supporting the continued growth of Asian and Asian American presence at UConn and celebrating Asian American heritage. Donate today and help PAC and AsACC ensure that Asian American voices are heard at UConn!
