The Asian American Sponsor Program (AASP) is a student-run organization that provides resources- in the form of programs, events and individual support- to Asian American first-years and trains upper-term students to develop their mentorship and facilitation skills. The mission of AASP is to create a supportive network of students at Scripps and in the 5Cs and to promote sustained dialogue and action on Asian American issues (intersected with dynamics of gender, class, sexuality, ethnicity, ability, etc.) that affect our students.

The Asian American Student Union (AASU) is an organization for self-identified Asian American (encompassing East, Southeast, South Asian, Middle Eastern and Mixed Race populations), Pacific Islander, and Alaskan Native students at Scripps College. AASU seeks to strengthen the Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) communities on campus and at the other Claremont Colleges by providing a safe space for our members to explore issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, and nationality. Our internal programming encourages our members to develop closer relationships with each other and offer the unique opportunity to learn from their peers. We work in coalition with Asian American organizations on the other campuses on social and political programs to build a wider, more inclusive Asian American community. We also work in partnership with the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies to better fit the Asian American Studies curriculum to student needs. We hope to love, encourage, support, and politicize our membership. In looking forward, we also hope to develop closer and more productive relationships with other students of color on Scripps' campus. We see this emphasis on collaboration as a manifestation of our collective political commitment to cross-race, cross-ethnic struggles.
