  • Cultivating relationships with the local community that advance the well-being of diverse individuals and communities.
  • Celebrating the diversity of the SDSU community through activities that increase awareness, education, and promotion of  Filipino American culture.
  • Bolstering the Fil-Am pipeline of students to SDSU by strengthening our relationships with A.B. Samahan, SDSU Samahan Filipino American Alumni, and other community and educational partners.
