Southeast Asian Intercollegiate Summit

Dear Community Leader,

We are writing on behalf of California’s coalition of Southeast Asian students.  This coalition is working collaboratively with student leaders from different colleges and universities to plan a Southeast Asian Intercollegiate Summit (SEA ICS).

On behalf of our community, I would like to invite you, your organization, and your community to the Southeast Asian Intercollegiate Summit 2012, “Rising from the Concrete”.

Some goals we’d like to accomplish are:

  • Provide a space to share and update knowledge about Southeast Asians on college campuses and in our respective regions
