Community Unified Student Network (CUSN)
CUSN, pronounced “cousin”, is a peer program dedicated, but not exclusive to the Asian-American/ Pacific Islander (AA/PI) community at the Universtiy of California, Santa Cruz. As the enrollment rates of AA/PI students increase at UCSC, their presence and voices, needs and concerns increasingly impact the larger campus community.
CUSN offers AA/PI students opportunities to become involved in the community, resources to enhance academic performance, and a venue in which to create student networks. CUSN is dedicated to creating a safe space for academic excellence and leadership development by building long and lasting communiteis of diverse AA/PI students.
CUSN strives to serve the cultural needs of this community in hopes of educating members, non-member, and allies of the AA/PI community regarding cultural awareness and its significance.
