Welcome to ECAASU

The East Coast Asian American Student Union (ECAASU) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to inspire, educate, and empower those interested in Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) issues. Run solely by volunteers, ECAASU’s advocacy work is conducted through outreach to AAPI students and organizations across the country and educating individuals on becoming agents of change through the various programs we hold over the course of the year, including an annual conference.

ECAASU has hosted 41 conferences and our 40 years of consecutive growth has pushed ECAASU to higher limits than ever before. Our networks stretch across universities from the eastern United States and our annual conferences draw students and activists from across the country.
