The "Asian House" will be renamed "The Glenn Omatsu House" on April 29th, Tuesday at 2:30 pm to honor Professor Glenn Omatsu for his tireless work to empower students and communities. The Glenn Omatsu House holds the Asian American Studies Activities Center and the Women's Research and Resource Center.

A brief history of the house. The university gave AAS the house in 1992 and AAS students started running activities out of the house in Spring 1994, after the earthquake renovation. We had run the house until Spring 2008 when we volunteered to temporarily share our house with WRRC whose house had burned down. In return for the temporary share, our house received renovation. Because of shortage of space on campus, we continue to share the house with WRRC.

The Asian American Studies Activities Center is a department, student, campus and community center. It 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 AASAC promotes academic and creative endeavors beyond the classroom environment.
