Thank you for your interest in the Asian Student Commission (ASC)! We are currently offering 3 specialized lead positions, as described below. All specialized lead (SL) positions require a commitment of 2 quarters, but it is recommended to be active for the entire school year. SLs are expected to be involved with the commission in some capacity for a minimum of 1-3 hrs/week. However, some weeks vary with hours being lower in some weeks and higher in times of programming events. Students from every academic year (freshmen to grad students) and various backgrounds are highly encouraged to apply!
ASC is committed to our core pillars of cultural preservation, social justice, and visibility. These SL positions are meant to be a learning opportunity for all; however, it is highly recommended that you come prepared with prior knowledge of Asian/Asian-American culture and history and/or a strong will to learn about such. We are in search of motivated, active, and caring individuals who are ready to serve the Asian/Asian-American community on the UW campus! This year we will focus a lot on intersectional identities, marginalized/underrepresented groups within the Asian community, and more! While still maintaining our cultural, political, and social ties.
