Asian American Programs and Services (ASAMPS) is one of four Multicultural Programs & Services (MCPS) offices that support a variety of students at the University of Oklahoma. With guidance from MCPS, we strive to strengthen the OU experience through our pillars of Community, Leadership, and Advocacy.
ASAMPS strives to provide motivation, encouragement, guidance, and support to all Asian American and Pacific Islander students as they matriculate to graduation. Through campus and community involvement, mentorship, leadership development, cultural awareness & support, we guide students to grow and develop through active participation towards their educational journey and goals.
Our office hosts many annual programs that celebrate and honor our culture while enriching the OU community. Additionally, we directly advise the Asian American Student Association, a premier student organization supporting the development of Asian students. We encourage you to also check out the many other cultural organizations on campus!
