The Glenn Omatsu House is a department, student, campus and community center. Founded in 1992 and then known as "the Asian House", it was and still is a meeting place for AAS clubs and organizations, as well as a study-center for student groups. Class projects, presentations, and special speaker visits take place in the center, bringing together AAS students from a variety of courses. The center also functions as a meeting space for AAS faculty and faculty from other departments and colleges. The Glenn Omatsu House promotes academic and creative endeavors beyond the classroom environment. When the Women's Research and Resource Center (WRRC) accidentally burned down in 2008, AAS offered to temporarily share part of our space with WRRC. Because of shortage of space on campus, we continue to share the house with WRRC.
On April 29, 2014, CSUN had a dedication ceremony to honor our benefactor, mentor, teacher and friend, Glenn Omatsu for his dedication to student and community empowerment. His mentee and our benefactor, Prosy delaCruz, has written an article in the Asian Journal to honor Professor Glenn Omatsu's work. CSUN Sundial also covers this house dedication ceremony. You can check out some pictures from the event with the SmugMug link.
The Glenn Omatsu House (a.k.a. "the Asian House") is located between Reseda & Etiwanda and Superior & Plummer.
