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.
