The Asian Initiative celebrates and promotes Asian and Asian American identity and culture. We create a sense of community and develop cultural understanding through education, awareness, and appreciation. Our goal is to develop programming and offer support to students to increase student enrollment and improve college access for Asian and Asian American Wolverines who are otherwise underserved.

To support these goals, we are currently developing the Asian Initiative. Check back soon for more information about how we support our Asian and Asian American students, staff, faculty, and community.


The Asian Initiative is committed to these core objectives:


Instilling and maintaining a spirit of community among those who identify under the Asian Diaspora


Promoting awareness of political issues and history that have affected Asian Americans and Asians within the U.S. and internationally


Fostering cultural understanding in the campus community


Increasing persistence and completion rates of students under the Asian diaspora
