The West Coast Asian Pacific Islander Student Union (WCAPSU) serves to support Asian/Pacific Islander/American students to enact progressive change across West Coast universities and communities. In recognizing critical needs for successful student organizing, WCAPSU facilitates a coalition space that shares advocacy opportunities, sustainable resources, and leadership development between campus constituents.
In order to achieve this mission, WCAPSU outreaches to multiple campuses and maintains a communicative and mutually beneficial relationship through the assistance of campus delegates. Each campus is allowed to have as many representatives involved with WCAPSU. However, WCAPSU participants must have a general understanding of their campus API/A communities and the issues that are relevant to their respective communities – or must have the determination and desire to gain an understanding of their respective campus climate and issues in regards to their API/A communities.
We ask that WCAPSU members:
- Represent respective campus community to WCAPSU
- Remain updated on respective community issues
- Update community on WCAPSU actions and campaigns
- Work with WCAPSU to promote, campaign, and mobilize
- Prior knowledge of API community issues and respective campus issues
If you are seeking to be involved with WCAPSU, please contact our co-Director Andy Su (firstname.lastname@example.org)
