Clubs

PCC Asian Pacific Islander Club

Are you an API student at PCC looking to connect with community and get support? Interested in joining a new PCC API Club? Sign up and I’ll send you info as it becomes available! Signing up just lets me know that you might be interested in coming to meetings or events – you don’t have to do anything and there’s no big commitment.

My name is Huai, and I work at the PCC SE Women’s Resource Center. As part of my leadership work I am starting a PCC API Club, and I hope other PCC API students will join.

Our draft mission statement: “The mission of the PCC API Club is to engage PCC API students in getting connected to one another, supporting one another, and getting access to on and off campus resources. We want to use a social justice approach to our work. This includes putting on programming and events that center our complex identities, confronts colonialism and white supremacy, and advocates for equitable access to education at PCC.

Questions? Email Huai at huai.ciang@pcc.edu.
