Despite wide spread support for an Asian Cultural Center at Purdue, progress continues to be marked in inches instead of miles(Photo by Lina de Martinez).
The Exponent reports the campus is working toward establishing a temporary space.
“Though it is not operational yet, this is a big step in that the University is recognizing the project and is committed to moving forward with it, ” said Victoria Loong, executive director of diversity and inclusion within Purdue Student Government.
Similar permanent centers have already been established for Black, Latino, Native American and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, and Queer students.
So why is there not one for Asian Americans? You can read about that in The Exponent.
