South Asian, Southwest Asian, and North African (SSWANA) Initiative
The SSWANA Initiative seeks to provide personalized access to resources on campus, accessible programming, promote cross-cultural community building, and advocate for social justice in SSWANA communities through education and empowerment.
The SSWANA Living Community offers opportunities to participate in social, cultural, and academic events that highlight the vibrance of SSWANA communities. A live-in Theme Program Resident Assistant (TPRA) provides resources and support for the students’ academic, cultural, and social needs. The SSWANA Themed Program Pilot cultivates a small community experience in a large university by providing a fun and unique space for students to explore their identities through community, education, and empowerment.
