Celebrate South Asia!

Category: Diversity Initiatives Support (DISC)

Celebrate South Asia! (CSA!) seeks to raise awareness about and advocate for the diverse cultures, languages, religions and people of South Asia (including, but not limited to, the countries of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) through discussions, activities, and events in community. We emphasize a realistic portrayal of the cultures and people of South Asia and the South Asian diaspora by critiquing, acknowledging, and celebrating multiple dimensions of our identities. We seek to create a community that fosters empowerment via cultural expression for people of the region, of the diaspora, and of the St. Olaf community.
