Founded in 1991, the African-American Cultural Center (AACC) at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) is an interdisciplinary unit that supports the academic and diversity missions of the university through innovative programs and initiatives that relate particular African-American and African Diaspora traditions, creative practices, and experiences to broader frameworks of thought, feeling, and action. The Center connects campus and community partners who reflect Chicagoland’s diverse intellectual and cultural life to promote intercultural understanding and social change.

The AACC is one of seven (7) Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change (CCUSC) located in the Office of Diversity under the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost.
