Our Voices, Our Story

The Hmong Student Union serves as a resource to the community through cultural and educational awareness.

With volunteerism and commitment, HSU has been able to showcase the Hmong culture to the Davis community. Each year, we try to organize activities and events for the public such as: traditional Hmong dance performances, cultural nights, and education workshops about our history.

The pursuit of higher education has been and still is a difficult plight, not only among HSU members but also throughout the Hmong community. Through student panels, mentoring programs, and educational workshops, we hope to build a bridge of support for the future generation and create an opportunity for you to learn more about how you can get involved.

    Hi Susan!

    Hmong Student Union at UCD has a High School Conference coming up in the Spring. The High School conference consists of helpful workshops for Hmong students that are geared to inspire you all towards higher education and to develop stronger identities as Hmong American. Definitely check out our High School Conference page. Also apply to our annual scholarship! There are two prizes and they each worth $500 to fund towards the winners’ college educations.

    Coming up, we also have a College Experience Days event where high school students get to stay with college students and shadow them for a few days at UCD. Stay tuned for updates on it.
