Biographical / Historical
The Asian Pacific American Student Organization is a group of organizations whose purpose includes: 1. To program for Asian Pacific American (APA) students in social, cultural, academic, and political areas2. To secure representation for APA students 3. To establish a communication and support network between APA faculty, staff, students, and the community 4. To voice APA nation- and campus-wide needs and concerns to the university 5. To sensitize and educate the University community on APA issues, and 6. To serve as a resource for other APA student organizations. They started in 1982 by a group of student activists. Over the years, they became more involved with APASO and OCAT (the Office of Cultural and Academic Transition) and devoted their time to raising Asian Pacific American awareness among Michigan State University's campus. Today, the progress of the Asian Pacific American Student Organization has continued to grow, and we have not only reached out to just the MSU campus, but to various APA and minority groups in Midwest as well. APASO is strongly dedicated to ... students;... constantly bringing vast amount of cultural perfomances for showing off unique talents within the APA community, as well as hosting several conferences for better understanding of both contemporary APA issues and diverse history.
