Mission Statement

The Hmong Student Association at Berkeley (HSAB) is a student initiated service group with the mission to promote higher education and cultural understanding for students of the Hmong community at the University of California, Berkeley. Founded in 2008, HSAB sets out to provide academic and social support to current and prospective Hmong students at Berkeley. Given the array of connections that students may have with the Hmong community, HSAB believes in providing services that are culturally sensitive and inclusive of all communities. Through the implementation of educational discussions, social activities, and outreach services, HSAB functions as a home and community space where students can explore, learn, and promote awareness about the Hmong culture, history, and contemporary issues. Just this year alone, HSAB has represented the voice and presence of the Hmong student community at Berkeley on the national and regional level.
