Pacific Islander, Asian & Asian American Student Center Our Mission The Pacific Islander, Asian and Asian American (PIAAA) Student Center at à£à£Ö±²¥ÐãState University offers an engaging and accepting space to address the diverse and changing needs of our Asian and Pacific Islander student communities. PIAAA strengthens the identity of API students through accessible programming, inter-cultural community building, and social justice education. All students are welcome.Â Our Story In December 2015, PSU students gathered to voice their concerns over campus climate and demand more resources for students of color. These demands included the creation of a student center for the Asian and Pacific Islander community. Soon after,Â President Wim Wiewel announced to campus the opening of two new cultural resource centers. After months of planning, theÂ Pacific Islander, Asian, and Asian American Student Center and Pan-African Commons opened in fall of 2016. For more information on the process the Cultural Resource Centers have implemented in opening the new student centers please go toÂ Gathering Space: Building Community.
