The South Asian Cultural Exchange, commonly referred to as SACE, is dedicated towards sharing and celebrating the South Asian culture with the Vanderbilt and Greater Nashville community. Having started several decades ago under the name of Indian Student Association, SACE has expanded its borders and now become one of Vanderbilt’s largest multicultural organizations with over 250 active members. SACE is also a member organization of the Multicultural Leadership Council (MLC) and the Vanderbilt Performing Arts Community (VPAC).
The SACE mission is three-fold:
- To organize events and activities that embrace the South Asian culture
- To serve as a support group, social network and cultural foundation for Vanderbilt students
- To establish relations and spread cultural awareness within the larger community including both at and away from the university, including the Greater Nashville area
