Community Outreach

Community Outreach

Mission

  • Identify and reach out to organizations or groups with whom AASA members can volunteer or for whom we can fundraise.
  • Establish relations with community centers, small businesses, and perhaps local schools.
  • The mission of the community outreach committee is to raise awareness for Asian-American issues through campus-wide events and opportunities to get involved. We aim to strengthen the relationships within AASA and with Asian Americans on campus. Our initiatives include hosting Asian-food-themed study breaks and “Family Talks” dinners open to all interested students.

Progress and Accomplishments in 2014-2015

  • Edited college application essays for Hmong youth in Wisconsin
  • Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM)
  • Communiversity: Princeton Festival of the Arts
    Presented by the Arts Council of Princeton and the students of Princeton University, the event originated as “The Art People’s Party” on the lawn of Nassau Hall in 1970. Later renamed Communiversity to capture the Town-Gown spirit of the event, the popular arts festival has grown to attract more than 35,000 visitors to Princeton, NJ each spring.
  • Preview Booths
  • Taiwanese American Student’s Association (TASA) Night Market (boba tea!)
