Our Mission

The Aoki Center fosters connection, praxis and critical pedagogy.

Connection -- The Aoki Center sponsors programs at King Hall and across the UC Davis campus that highlight critical scholarship, connecting faculty who conduct critical scholarship on issues involving race, immigration, and/or nation with one another and with interested students.

Praxis -- The Aoki Center also seeks to foster student excellence in critical race theory with initiatives that connect learned theory to practice, improving the lives of subordinated groups.

Critical Pedagogy -- Finally, the Aoki Center seeks to improve the pedagogical mission of King Hall with initiatives that enrich the student experience, including presentations, panels, and discussions.
