APASA stands for the Asian Pacific American Student Assembly. We are the umbrella organization for 21 Asian Pacific American (APA) member organizations at USC, each playing an important role in event planning and sharing information at assembly meetings. We also serve as a source of funding and advisement for our member organizations.
Our Mission: To celebrate and share Asian Pacific American (APA) heritage and diversity, USC APASA supports its member organizations and sponsors cultural events to foster unity and growth within and beyond the APA Trojan community. We strive to create a more united community, where students support each other culturally, socially and academically by educating each other with their heritage, history and traditions.
