Amerasia is a diverse multi-cultural organization. We promote cultural diversity and cultural awareness at all our events and in our activities. Amerasia also supports excellence in higher education and have fund raised at many events to support scholarships for students pursuing their education. In addition, Amerasia continues to educate the community of the various Asian cultures here in the Central Valley through our annual Amerasia Week (held every spring semester).

Description

In 1970, Professor Izumi Taniguchi created the Asian American Studies at Fresno State due to the political instability and student activism. Two students of Professor Izumi Taniguchi then decided to get together and create an organization for Asian American students to help promote cultural diversity and cultural awareness. That was when the Amerasia Organization was formed. Today Amerasia is a vastly diverse multi-cultural organization. We still strongly promote cultural diversity and cultural awareness. Amerasia also supports higher education. With this in mind, Amerasia hopes to raise enough money to fund a scholarship fund for students pursuing higher education, in the near future. In addition, Amerasia continues to educate the community of the various Asian cultures here in the Central Valley through our annual Amerasia Week.
