Biographical Note / Historical Note / Administrative History

On March 26, 1991, the Asian American Student Association (AASA) was approved to become a student organization. The AASA was originally located in the Multicultural Center. The reorganization of the Multicultural Center in 2000 relocated the group to the Office of Student Life, the clearing house for all recognized student organizations. During the Spring Semester of 2021, the AASA changed its name to the Asian Student Union (ASU).

The purpose of ASU is to provide cultural and educational programming about Asian and Asian American history, culture, and interests. The primary goal is to strengthen cultural pride and facilitate the development of a campus environment conducive to cultural appreciation. ASU membership is open to all students, regardless of racial or ethnic backgrounds. ASU-sponsored programs include: Asian American Awareness Month, Asian Fashion Show, Street Festival, Tea Time and Meditation, K-pop Dance Night, and much more.
