"The CCNY Asian Alumni Group was established in 1981 to promote networking among the expanding population of Asian-American students and alumni. We strive to educate and promote awareness of Asian-American issues, interests, and culture with our Asian heritage students, the general CCNY student population, faculty, as well as alumni. We welcome all those with heritage from East and West Asia, as well as anyone who is interested in Asian-American culture and community.
We work to recognize the contributions and achievements of Asian CCNY graduates with Achievement Awards presented to honorees who have raised the profile and advanced the interests of Asian- Americans. We also work to inspire and motivate high achieving Asian-American students who have a record of service to the community, with Scholarship Awards.
We sponsor events and programs to raise awareness and inform about developments at CCNY that affect the Asian-American population. Our objective is to create a sense of service and a professional network of students, alumni, and faculty that can support our members both during and after their time at CCNY."
The Asian Alumni Group is one of the Affiliate Groups under the umbrella of the City College of New York Alumni Association. The Affiliates represent special concerns, interests and educational specialties of alumni. The groups are each governed by a voluntary Board of Directors with officers and conduct activities to benefit alumni and today’s students.
