Augsburg's PASS Graduating Class of 2017
Augsburg’s PASS Graduating Class of 2017

Mission:

To provide support services and opportunities for all Augsburg students, with an emphasis on Pan Asian students, that will engage students in transformative, lifelong learning and develop life skills in consideration of cultural context which complement their academic experience through co-curricular involvement and civic engagement.

MULTICULTURAL LIFE EDUCATIONAL PRIORITY STATEMENT

We believe when students have a greater understanding of self, they become empowered to reclaim* ownership of their education. Multicultural Life provides opportunities to deepen awareness and knowledge of identity, resilience, and advocacy.

*Due to white supremacist foundation that is rooted within higher education, education does not allow historically underserved students to take stake in their learning. 

FRAMEWORK OF THE PROGRAM:

The four pillars that drive the department are Leadership, Education, Advocacy, and Community. Through this framework, PASS provides advising, mentoring, support, and fellowship to ethnically diverse students.
