Mission Statement

CSA is a student organization and resource devoted to promoting unity and empowerment among all UCSC students through education, consciousness and recognition of Chinese and Chinese American cultural aspects. We strive to strengthen the diverse UCSC community by organizing events that create a space for student voices and coalition building.


We’ll be posting an updated 2012-2013 Constitution soon. 🙂


In 1999, CSA adopted this image as the official organization logo here at UCSC. Created by CSA Core, this simple logo incorporates the letters of the organization with a somewhat altered yin-yang symbol.


The oldest active records of CSA date back to the 1986-1987 school year when CSA participated in the annual Multicultural Festival. This website has been adopted since the 2006-2007 school year.
