Host an ECAASU Campus Summit
Receive national support to create programming for your community.
ECAASU Campus Summits (formerly Campus Tours) are regional events coordinated with your organization or university to educate, advocate and engage students that are interested in AAPI issues and to promote a more diverse and 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, to hear different points of view, and to engage in meaningful conversation with peers and the larger AAPI community.
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 Summits 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.
By hosting a Campus Summit, you will be able to plan your event with the ECAASU National Board in order to make sure your vision is able to come into fruition. Typically, Campus Summits are a collaborative effort with your organization and the ECAASU National Board to make your idea of the event a reality. In the past, ECAASU Campus Summits have featured networking opportunities, guest speakers, leadership development workshops, action plan trainings, and town hall discussions.
Applications are now open for the 2019 - 2020 school year and will be considered on a rolling basis until October 12, 2019 at 11:59 PM.
For more information regarding Campus Summits and to see how you can get involved, contact the Campus Summit Coordinators, Justin Chu, Mannat Thakur, and Minnie Jung at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org respectively.
Campus Summits FAQ
Why should I host a Campus Summit?
Hosting a stop of the Campus Summit 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 hearing students’ ideas, we create a launching point to create an action plan to further develop this desire for change.
