Asian/Asian Pacific American Students' Coalition

Asian/Asian Pacific American Students' Coalition

The Asian/Asian Pacific American Students’ Coalition is an alliance of nearly 20 clubs and organizations at ASU. Our goal is to help maintain a strong Asian American and Pacific Islander community within ASU by coordinating campus-wide events that cultivates awareness of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, advocating for and representing the interests and needs of the Asian/Asian Pacific American students, and by remaining active in the community at large.


Upcoming events

Throughout the academic year, Arizona State University dedicates months and weeks to honoring Sun Devils’ heritage. The Asian/Asian Pacific American Students' Coalition leads the celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month each April. To learn how you can be involved in planning the celebration of our rich, diverse community of ASU students, connect with our coalition.

Dr. Karen Kuo, Associate Professor and Lead Faculty
Asian Pacific American Studies, School of Social Transformation

Dr. Karen Kuo is an associate professor in the School of Social Transformation. Her current work focuses on the geopolitical and cultural representations of Asia and Asians in films and novels of early twentieth century America. Her work examines how U.S. narratives about Asia and Asian migration culturally defined US understandings of the foreign and the domestic. She was also the lead principal investigator for the International Nikkei Legacy Project (INRP) sponsored in part by the Japanese American National Museum. The INRP creates and maintains a database of international Nikkei sources in Arizona and interfaces with the global Japanese diaspora project of the museum. In addition she is co-editing "Japanese Americans in Arizona." Her future work will explore the formation of Taiwanese American communities and identity during the Cold War.
