ECAASU, the oldest national Asian American student organization in the country, has enjoyed over 40 years of education, advocacy, and activism. We would like to continue this long-standing tradition of success, by opening up the applications for next year's Board of Directors.

ECAASU is assembling a volunteer team of passionate, open-minded students, recent graduates, and young professionals who will take the initiative on advancing a variety of issues and build the Asian American and Pacific Islander student community on the East Coast. We encourage anyone who is interested in contributing to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community to apply.

ECAASU provides equal opportunities to all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, genetic, or immigration status.
