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.

              Lute Nation

              Lute Nation is step, and stepping is rooted in Black culture and community. At PLU, there is a unique opportunity to have step be an inclusive space for people of all backgrounds. The goal of Lute Nation is to step together in the representation of all college life, genders, creeds, and nationalities, bridge the gap between PLU and its surrounding community, entertain and educate while advancing the art form and culture of stepping, and have fun and meet others who are interested in what we do.
