Community Outreach

Page

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

With wonderful volunteerism and commitment of our members, HSU has been able to showcase Hmong culture to the Davis community through various public activities such as: traditional Hmong dance performances, Hmong cultural nights, informational historical nights on Hmong customs and history, and involvement in multicultural events.

The pursuit of higher education has been and still is a difficult plight not only towards HSU members but also throughout the Hmong community, thus we utilize our knowledge of the higher education system to our fullest advantage by sharing information to the community through group campus tours, student panels, mentoring programs, public event tabling, and educational workshops.

      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.
