LaGuardia Community College has been celebrating the Asian Heritage Celebration in May every year. AHC is an annual event of LaGuardia featuring various cultural, philosophical, and linguistic heritages from Asian countries. Along with the other cultural heritage celebrations, including African American Heritage week and Latino Heritage week, AHC acknowledges and celebrates diversity and cultural richness of LaGuardia Community College. The Asian Heritage Committee is committed promoting to Asian and Asian American groups on campus. Our Mini-Conference and Final Celebration are intended to provide the college with a wonderful array of educational, cultural and engaging programs that will heighten the awareness and contributions of Asian and Asian American groups in New York City.
