Indiana Asian American Conference

In 2015, the Asian American Association (AAA) at Indiana University Bloomington,a student led organization, established what is now one of Indiana’s largest and only educational Indiana Asian American Conference. This conference is open to all Indiana residents and any fellow travelers with the purpose of tackling issues and promoting discussions related to the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. AAA actively aims to instill and maintain a spirit of community among Asian Pacific Americans at Indiana University as well as those interested in learning about the experience, to promote a broad-reaching awareness of Asian Pacific American political issues and active presence on this campus, and to foster cultural understanding in the campus community as a whole, bridging gaps between Asian Pacific Americans and all peoples of this university.
