Thank you very much for your interest in the Haitian American Student Association, otherwise known as H.A.S.A. We are small student-run organization on the Syracuse University campus and we look forward to a successful 2017-2018 academic year with your help.
The purpose of H.A.S.A. is to promote awareness of Haitian culture on the SU campus and throughout the community. Haitian culture is beautiful and we look forward to sharing its social, economic and political aspects with everyone we encounter.
The purpose of this organization shall be to broaden the awareness of the Haitian culture and promote unity and self-awareness among students of Haitian descendant on Syracuse University's campus.
We will educate both the campus and surrounding community on the social, economical, and political issues affecting Haiti currently. Through running programs such as seminars and lectures with guest speakers, social events, fund-raising, and bi-weekly general body meetings, we can help highlight the prosperity and achievements of the country. It is through education that myths, stigma, and stereotypes can be abolished.
Our mission is to help foster an atmosphere of cultural acceptance and diversity at Syracuse University.
