Asian and Asian American LLC

The Asian and Asian American Living Learning Community is a residential community base for all Dartmouth students interested in engaging with issues specific to Asian/Asian American identity and the histories of trans-Pacific migrations, regardless of prior knowledge base or racial identification.

About the Community

We serve as the center for academic conversations around Asian/Asian American issues and a space to host meetings and discussions related to Asian/Asian American identity, while also serving as a welcoming location for anyone interested in learning about these topics.

Through film screenings, community potlucks, optional trips to nearby conferences and exhibitions, student-led discussions, dinners with professors, and intercommunity discussions, we will critically assess what it means to be Asian/Asian American as individuals and as a community at and outside of Dartmouth. We hope to foster a better understanding of Asian/Asian American identity and how it intersects with gender, sexuality, religion, nationality, and more.

We welcome all students interested in learning more about the Asian/Asian American identity.

Application Prompts

  1. Why are you interested in being a part of the Asian/American LLC? What would you bring to the community?
  2. What does an Asian/American identity on the Dartmouth campus mean to you?
  3. What is an aspect of Asian/Asian American identity that you would like to explore through LLC programming?


Some residents of this learning community will have the opportunity to live co-located together in one of our residence halls to allow for a maximum level program immersion. As space is limited, we will also offer the opportunity for students assigned to live in residence halls around campus to participate in programming through our hybrid model.
