Who We Are

What We Do

Community

The Asian Pacific Student Coalition is directed by a 7 member Executive Board and APSC representatives from each of its 23 Asian constituent groups on Penn’s campus. General Body Meetings on every other Wednesday bring all constituent groups together to discuss matters of concern, publicize upcoming events, and gather the support of the community in their individual endeavors.

Coordination

APSC activities include coordinating the Asian Pacific American Heritage Week (APAHW), the Resource Guide for incoming freshmen, and various events such as potlucks, socials, etc. APSC also participates in the development of the Asian American (ASAM) Studies Program and efforts to increase funding and resources at the Greenfield Intercultural Center (GIC) and the Pan-Asian American Community House (PAACH).

Collaboration

The Board collaborates with the the Latino Coalition, the Lambda Alliance, UMOJA, and the United Minorities Council on issues where our interests intersect. Recently we have been meeting with the office of the Vice Provost of University Life to discuss the Intercultural Fund, the architectural renovations of the ARCH Building, recruitment of underrepresented ethnicities in the student body and teaching faculty, and mental health issues among others.
