Asian American Heritage Week

What is Asian American Heritage Week?

Asian American Heritage Week will be held from November 2-8, 2014 at Northeastern University. This collection of events is just a small taste of the diversity that represents Asian America - both at Northeastern, and beyond. Our hope is that together, these events will spark discussion and inquiry about where we have come from as Asian Americans, and where we are going. Stop by, take a look, learn more about who we are.

While Asian American Heritage Month is traditionally celebrated in May, we celebrate in February to give our community an opportunity to fully participate in and enjoy the week of events. Our heritage week includes the Day of Remembrance which honors the anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 which sent 120,000 Japanese Americans into internment camps during World War II.

This year we are examining a unique challenge Asian Americans face, especially college students: the role of cultural and personal identity and its effects on individuals part of the Asian (American) diaspora. Our theme “Explore Who You Are” invites all students to explore their identities and embrace themselves to become the person they wish to be.
