The Philippine Student Association (PSA) is a registered student organization (RSO) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Our mission is as follows:
To foster and maintain relationships through the education and awareness of Filipino identity and culture, as well as to develop academic and leadership skills in order to positively impact the self and the community.
PSA is the largest Filipino-interest organization and one of the largest Asian-interest organizations on the University campus. Since its founding in 1919, PSA has been celebrating Filipino culture and identity and promoting cultural awareness for Filipino culture and the broader Asian and Pacific Islander community.
More than a century since its founding, PSA continues to organize and host events that inform the campus, the surrounding communities, and other colleges and universities about Filipino culture and identity. For students on campus, PSA provides a home away from home, welcoming members from all backgrounds into the PSA community.
