What do we do?
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.
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).
The Board collaborates with other minority coalitions in the 5B - the Latinx Coalition, the Lambda Alliance, UMOJA, and the United Minorities Council - as well as PAGE, the Penn Association for Gender Equity, on issues where our interests intersect.
