Cultural organizations across college campuses provide a space for students to find community through cultural connection. These organizations serve many purposes; social groups, practice for cultural traditions, language resources, advocacy, professional development, etc. Whether a Nikkei Student Union, Japan Student Association, Asian American Student Union, cultural performance groups, etc., what roles do these organizations play on college campuses? How are they similar, how do they differ? Who joins a cultural organization? Join the community as we discuss Nikkei spaces on college campuses.
