Come join Asian Unity as we strive to promote diversity, community, and individualism while still incorporating FUN in all that we do. We are located in the Green Stricken Valley that is known as Boulder, Colorado. Here you will find a community overrun by buffalos that has made its home at the University of Colorado. Within this community exist many sub-communities that range in all sorts of shapes, size, color, age, gender, etc.
One of these communities, founded in 2001, is the Asian Unity. Our community is entering our 10th year as an organization and we continue to grow as new BUFFS filter into the community. Also, as our ever-expanding alumnus grows up to do great things outside of this community, we continue to remain in contact with them and support them long after they graduate. Join Asian Unity as we move forward in creating a diverse, fun, welcoming, and educational community!!!
CU-Boulder’s Asian Unity celebrates 10th year
WRITTEN BY PATRICIA KAOWTHUMRONG | 05 OCTOBER 2011
Asian Unity (AU), a student group at the University of Colorado in Boulder with the initiative to make a difference for Asian American students on campus celebrates their ten year anniversary this year.
“We want to help build a better inclusive community of Asian and non-Asian groups,” said Travis Kiatoukaysi, a sophomore business major.
Through offering academic support to students, sponsoring monthly events and working to educate the campus about diverse Asian cultures and issues, AU has been representing Asian Americans at CU-Boulder since 2001. The group was founded in hope to create awareness and help eliminate stereotypes about Asian Americans and invites all students to come together to get to know communities they’re typically foreign to.
Their most well-known event is Taste of Asia, a spring festival on campus featuring food from different Asian countries. AU brings together other Asian student groups on campus to make the cultural event a yearly success. Their annual fall retreat is October 7-9, which will focus on team building, communication and leadership, said Allen Nguyen, a junior business major. AU has partnered with the Center for Multicultural Affairs to provide a workshop on how to be Asian American leaders.
