Asian American Leadership Institute is a program geared to improve leadership skills, increase awareness of social justice issues, and stimulate involvement in the Asian American community. AALI is series of six workshops in which the students explore different areas of leadership development. Some of the topics we discuss include program planning, social justice and activism, Asian American history and professional development. AALI is designed to educate students about contemporary Asian American issues so that they can become effective student leaders. Students will broaden their viewpoints and be involved in networking opportunities throughout the institute. Past participants have graduated from the program and become successful campus leaders in organizations such as APAC, ABSA, Student Government, CAAS, SVB, CSA and many more.
We look forward to meeting and preparing you to become an outstanding leader for communities in need. If you would like to learn more about AALI, please come to our info sessions at SAC 1.102 on:
- Tuesday (9/17) at 6:30-7 PM

Welcome to the Asian Desi Pacific Islander American Collective's (APAC) official webpage! We are starting off the school year with our signature event called You Bring Out (YBO) the Asian American in Me, which we are co-hosting with Asian American Culture (ACC) to welcome the incoming Asian American freshmen class and transfer students. The purpose of YBO is to gather all resources, including Asian American student organizations on campus, UT departments, and Asian non-profit organizations in Austin, in one place so that you can become better acclimated to college life! This year, YBO will have a resource fair and an awesome student performance showcase. There will be live entertainment, representatives from all over campus that you can chat with and, of course, FREE swag! YBO will be held on September 3rd, 2013 in the Texas Union Ballroom (UNB 3.202). A resource fair will be held at the Texas Union Ballroom from 4:00PM to 6:00PM where you can meet and talk to different Asian American student organizations and find out exactly how to get involved on campus your freshman year. You will also be able to collect stamps to trade for priority seating for the performances that will start at 6:30PM. The door for performances will open before 6:30PM, and admission will be free. There are only a limited amount of seats, so make sure you come early! We will be giving out prizes throughout the show, so save the date and come be a part of one of the greatest events this Fall.
