Asian Heritage Month

Please join us in celebrating the Asian Heritage Month this April by exploring the resources that highlight aspects of Asian culture and tradition.

The Asian Heritage Month Celebration was initiated in 1990 with a goal to increase cultural awareness within our diverse college community. Over the years, this annual event had included Asian dance, music, food, and Asian arts and crafts. This year, the committee on Asian Heritage Celebration has coordinated several virtual events and compiled resources for Queensborough's students, faculty, and staff.
