The United Asian American Council (UAAC) was organized to bring programs, support, and social events to the Asian American population. It was organized to become the unifying agent of all Asian Americans on campus by taking responsibility for programming social, cultural, and educational programs for Asian American students. The objectives of the United Asian American Council are as follows:
1) Serving the needs of the Asian American students through providing an environment of academic and emotional support, facilitating the development of leadership skills, and promoting social interactions and working alliances.
2) Offering educational and social programs for Asian Americans and the Southern Illinois University community to facilitate cultural awareness, interactions, understanding, and mutual respect among the student groups.
