2021 - 2022 DJS Clubs

DJS Clubs believe in and work to promote equity between individuals and across the institution. This coalition of DJS Clubs will work from an intentional and intersectional framework that centers marginalized identities and raises awareness of injustice at PLU through an anti-oppression framework.

Asian Pacific Islander Student Association (APISA)

The Asian Pacific Islander Student Association (APISA) is a PLU DJS club that seeks to promote Asian and Pacific Islander cultures through cultural awareness and support within the PLU community to obtain unity through diversity. You do not need to be of Asian or Pacific Islander heritage to join our club. We welcome anyone who is interested in learning and supporting the API culture.
