Lunar New Year Stories
Want to learn more about Lunar New Year and how it is celebrated by various ethnic groups across the United States and around the world? Join us for a time of storytelling and food.

Co-sponsored by the AACC and Yale-China Association.
AACC Senior Stories
Come through to the AACC for the first Senior Stories of this semester! Each session, 2-3 seniors will have a chance to reflect on life before, during, and after Yale. We hope this will give us a chance to get to know each other in a more intimate setting, cherish the diversity of experiences in our community, and of course, celebrate our seniors!!

Vicky is a senior double majoring in Political Science and French, with interest in philosophy of science and language preservation. She is from Beautiful British Columbia (her province's license plate slogan, which is full of truth). After college, she will move to Silicon Valley to work in technology mergers and acquisitions, before applying to law school and eventually attempting world domination. Vicky loves taking long walks, playing visual novels, and sending greeting cards to her friends. She truly believes the P is for the P in Pierson College.

Catherine graduated in December 2018 and now lives mere meters away from the lovely AACC. At Yale, she was a Trumbullian MCDB major and premed (although the past tense is tentative, since she will be attending the May 2019 graduation like everyone else). She grew up on the border of Pennsylvania and Delaware, where the Philly China town was a central part of her weekends; as of six years ago, she now hails from the frosty city of Rochester, MN (also cool, but no China town whatsoever). As a Yale undergrad, she expended most of her life force on graphic design/illustration, CASA board, writing for English seminars and the YDN, tutoring, and running from the peak of Science Hill to the Yale Stem Cell Center. She applied for medical school this cycle and is very excited to make a final decision about it in April. Finally: She intended for this to be a gap semester, but true to her innate character and habits, she has taken on far too many part time positions for this to hold true. #Yale. Come hear her (and her cooler partner, Vicky Liu) reflect on all this and more.
Tina Yeh Fellowship
Tina Yeh Fellowship Applications is OPEN!
DUE March 29th!

In 2001, members of the Association of Asian American Yale Alumni (AAAYA), along with family and friends established the Tina E. Yeh Community Service Fellowship in memory of Tina E. Yeh ’83. Managed by the Asian Pacific Fund, this fellowship program encourages Yale undergraduates and recent graduates to become involved in community service through summer internships.

Day of Remembrance Event
On Tuesday, February 19, JASU and the AACC will be hosting a Day of Remembrance Event at the AACC from 5 pm to 8 pm, with dinner provided.

The event will draw parallels between past and current events and the red flags we are seeing today, in the hopes that we can learn from the mistakes of the past to build a better future.
 
We will be showing a short film, having a panel discussion/Q+A session with speakers, and concluding with a networking reception. Food will be provided at no cost.
 
5:00-5:10: Opening

The 2019 AAU Campus Sexual Climate Survey
If you are a Yale student—graduate, undergraduate, or professional—you would have received an invitation in your email from President Salovey asking you to take part in the 2019 Campus Sexual Climate Survey. This confidential survey asks about students' perceptions and experiences of sexual misconduct, campus resources and support, and bystander intervention. The results will help guide Yale’s strategies for addressing sexual misconduct. The strength of those findings, though, will depend on you!  Please, check your inbox and fill out the survey.  (The links are unique, so each person can find the email in their own inbox.) Yale will report on the results in Fall 2019.  For more details about the survey and Yale’s resources, please see smr.yale.edu. For information, advocacy, and support, contact SHARE (203-432-2000) at any time.

"COMPLICIT - ERASURE OF THE BODY"
Hello artists, musicians, writers, and creators of all kinds,

Nasty Women CT is partnering with Yale Divinity School to host their third annual exhibition, Complicit- Erasure of the Body.” Additional local organizations-- like Black Lives Matter New Haven, New Haven Pride Center, Elm City Collective, and more-- are also collaborating in this exhibition reflecting on sexual violence, complicity, and faith. Please, see the exhibition proposal:
 
"In light of the #MeToo Movement, and as we think about the grey areas of this movement against sexual violence and harassment, we invite you to express how acts of complicity remove one’s voice, erase the body and sense of self from the emotional, the spiritual and the physical."

This is an open-call to the greater New Haven area, and we are accepting works of all kinds. Please, submit to the exhibition and forward this message to your friends, neighbors, faith communities, or colleagues! Submissions are due February 15th and artwork will need to be dropped off at Yale Divinity School at the end of February. Physical artwork should approximate four square feet (or less), but we are also hoping to receive music, poetry, dances, and other kinds of creative endeavors! Also, mark your calendars for the opening reception in the evening on March 8th at Yale Divinity School! For more information, see:
