ARC Coordinator

Welcome to the Asian Resource Center (ARC)! We are excited to have you visit our ARC website! The Asian Resource Center was first proposed as a student-service location for UCSB in 1997. Today it has a permanent home on the ground floor of the Student Resource Building. It’s a meeting place, activity center, and more than that—it’s a place to kick back, study and meet with friends.

Not so incidentally, it also houses a library of Asian Pacific American books, videos, photos, student group information, and events. But it’s here for all students who attend UCSB.
