Founded in 1991, the African American Cultural Center (AACC) at UIC supports the academic and diversity missions of the University by engaging campus and community partners in innovative cultural, social and scholarly activities that examine African-American and African-Diasporan identities, traditions and creative practices through a social justice lens. The AACC recognizes that identities are socially constructed and intersectional. To that end, the Center especially supports programs and initiatives that promote collaboration and experiential learning.
