VSU Winter Week 4 General Meeting
SEA ADMIT WEEKEND 2012 [COORDINATOR AND VOLUNTEER APPLICATION]
The fourth annual Southeast Asian (SEA) Admit Weekend is a unique 4-day, 3-night program from Thursday April 12th to Sunday April 15th, 2012 that will serve as a platform for students of Burmese, Hmong, Indonesian, Khmer, Laotian, Mien, Thai, Vietnamese, and other Southeast Asian descent to experience campus life and higher education. This year, the weekend seeks to achieve a higher enrollment of Southeast Asian minority students by spreading awareness of the Southeast Asian identity and current educational issues. We hope to provide support, a sense of belonging, and the opportunity to think critically about our SEA identities as we highlight the struggles that Hmong, Khmer, Laotian, Thai, Vietnamese and other SEA students encounter in their daily lives. By exploring the resources available at UCLA through a peer-to-peer relationship, we strive to bridge the gap between higher education and community conditions. This Admit Weekend is necessary to ensure the diversity and representation of SEA students on the UCLA campus.
This year’s SEA Admit Weekend at UCLA seeks to address access and financial issues specific to the SEA community. Southeast Asians have been historically underrepresented in higher education and especially in the UC system, even though California holds the highest concentrations of many Southeast Asian groups (including Vietnamese, Thai, Laotian, Hmong, Mien, and Khmer) in the US. The recent fee increases on the UC campus is another factor that will prevent representation of Southeast Asians at UCLA. The program is highly necessary to ensure the diversity and representation UCLA strives to achieve.
