Asian American Student Association

The Asian American Student Association, commonly referred to as AASA, was established in 1985 at the University of Oklahoma. The purpose of the organization is to promote the culture of OU through activities that educate and celebrate the rich heritage and traditions of Asian Americans by emphasizing the cultural heritage, language, and tradition of Asian Americans.  AASA organizes and supports programming that enhances student's educational, personal, and professional development.

AASA is a Department Sponsored Organization and is advised by Asian American Programs and Services with support from Multicultural Programs and Services and the Office of Student Life.


AASA membership is open to any enrolled student at the University of Oklahoma who is interested and committed to promote the Asian community. Paid members are eligible to vote and receive an official AASA t-shirt, among other privileges. However, students do not have to be paid members to participate in AASA events and meetings.
