ASUW ASIAN STUDENT COMMISSION wins ENTITY OF THE YEAR!!!It has been an incredible experience serving as your ASC director this year, it has been a rewarding, challenging, and growing experience for me throughout this year and one of the highlights of my college experience! The programs & advocacy work done by ASC could not have happen without the support of our constituents & interns, thank you for having me as your director! I cannot wait to see ASC continue to grow under the leadership of next year’s director, Johnson Nguyen.

#NOLONGERINVISIBLE

2014-05-21 14.34.02In recognition of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month students present a photo campaign of ANTI-STEREOTYPES & MICROAGGRESSIONS that face our communities. 

Too often the voices of API students are left out of the conversation as people of color and of marginalized communities, this is our way to (re)claim our narratives#nolongerinvisible

By sharing these messages we hope people consider the impacts of stereotypes that leads to individual, structural, & institutional racism. Whether these comments are intentional or unintentional, the impact is still the same and we hope this project sparks dialogue and continuous learning.
