What is PASS?

Mission Statement

Pilipinx Academic Student Services is an entirely student-run organization formed in 1985 to address the educational concerns of Pilipinx students in pursuit of higher education. PASS attempts to remedy the lack of representation among the University's student population with respect to the growing Pilipinx population of California. The organization focuses primarily on increasing the educational opportunities available to these students through the implementation of various informational resources, support, and referral services. We provide programs targeted specifically toward the recruitment of high school and community college students, as well as programs for the retention of the University's registered students. PASS endeavors to maintain its commitment to the surrounding communities and to the University through efforts to preserve educational interest.


PASS is composed of 3 components:


Recruitment

Getting underrepresented Pilipinx students into higher education.

Retention

Making sure those students are successful once they get there.

Internal

Handling all the essential organizational & financial support.
