Apply to host an ECAASU Campus Tour at your university or city!
ECAASU Campus Tours are events coordinated with your organization or university to educate, advocate and engage students that are interested in AAPI issues and to promote a more inclusive world. We work with you to see what issues are important at your specific university, in your city or region, and create a curriculum that will help attendees gain a greater understanding of those issues and to hear different points of view.
For many people, the ECAASU conference is way to talk about issues often seen as taboo and to engage with others that have diverse perspectives. The ECAASU Campus Tours are a way for you to begin or to continue the conversation, and create a space in which people are actively thinking, listening and communicating with one another.
Through the campus tour, you will be able to communicate with and plan your event with the ECAASU National Board in order to make sure your vision is able to come into fruition. Typically, campus tours have a beginning mixer, a series of workshops, a town hall discussion and end with action plan training. The town hall discussion is facilitated by the ECAASU National Board and is a way for attendees to actively discuss what is happening in their community and in the greater world. The National Board provides the Action Plan training where we are able to provide attendees with an effective plan to address issues and to create awareness in order to improve the environment. In the past, ECAASU Campus Tours have also featured: mixers and games, networking, guest speakers, leadership development workshops etc.

Campus Tour FAQ
Why should I host a Campus Tour?
Hosting a stop of the Campus Tour is a great way for your organization to identify salient issues that your campus wants to engage in. By holding a town hall and round table meeting and culminating students’ ideas, we will use this as a launching point to create an action plan to further develop this desire for change.
How much does it cost to run a Campus Tour?
There’s no typical budget. It has cost as little as $50 and as much as $700. It depends on how simple or elaborate of an event you want to organize.
What is the time commitment for organizing this event?
As with anything, we believe that the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. The ECAASU National Board will help you to determine your goals and intended impact and continue to work with you in order to make your vision come into fruition. We believe that open communication is extremely important and will coordinate with you to see what times are best to communicate. In the past, biweekly conference calls have proven most effective.
Who have been past speakers at these events?
Past speakers have included nonprofit directors, distinguished alumni, and of course, those on ECAASU National Board and its Board of Directors.
What does a Campus Tour really encompass?
A schedule typically includes a town hall, a guest speaker, workshops and the ECAASU Action Plan training. Each Campus Tour is different, and the content and event timeline will be dependent on your goals.
