03:19 pm - The Hapa Issues Forum has changed its name to the Multi-Cultural Student Union

From the Multi-Cultural Student Union which used to be the "Hapa Issues Forum:"

"What gives? Where is the Hapa Issues Forum website?

Well in a word, things have changed a little. In a nutshell, we’re expanding our focus from hapa, to multi-cultural/multi-ethnic/multi-racial individuals. The officers are the same. The website address is the same (for now). The listed socials, events, and meetings are the same. But we’re trying to have a different focus.

While Hapa Issues Forum has always welcomed multi-cultural/multi-ethnic/multi-racial individuals, the fact that the club included the name “hapa” represented a focus on the mixed Asian communities. We on core have felt that perhaps we should re-evaluate our position, and attempt to reach out to a broader community. Thus, Hapa Issues Forum is undergoing a metamorphosis of sorts and becoming …


Multi-Cultural Student Union


Now we know that is a mouth-full, so please call us “Mixed” for short.

Please take a moment to read the old Hapa Issues Forum mission statement, and the new Multi-Cultural Student Union mission statement. * Mission Statements are like a club thesis, it is the embodiment of our ideals and goals as an organization.

Old:

Hapa Issues Forum (HIF) is dedicated to enriching the lives of Asian Pacific Islanders of mixed heritage and developing communities that value diversity.

New:

Multi-Cultural Student Union promotes multiculturalism and establishes unity of purpose by;


building community
outreach through leadership & service to the campus and greater community
promoting awareness and education through dialogue of multiethnic/multicultural issues.
ultimately, fostering personal growth and development as well as empowerment."
