“What Is Tri-CASC?”

The Tri-College Asian Student Conference, Tri-CASC, is a conference organized by students from the liberal arts colleges that constitute the Tri-College Consortium in Pennsylvania. Created for Asian and Pacific Islander, Asian American, and Pacific Islander American (API/A) identifying students and allies from within the Consortium and institutions in the greater Philadelphia area, this multi-day conference consists of a series of panels, speakers, workshops, and performances centered on the issues that grip API/A communities.

Mission Statement

Tri-CASC strives to serve as a place of solidarity, pride, and love for the API/A community and represent the experiences and narratives of all Asian and Pacific Islander identifying people in America. It is imperative that we progress the critical dialogues occurring at our individual campuses to build coalitions and further understand the nuances of the many API/A experiences. Rooting our conversations in history, we will interrogate how our community has been the victim of oppression, both throughout history and in today’s political and social climate, and acknowledge how API/As have also been complicit toward systemic injustices. By leveraging the collective power of the various API/A communities, we can continue to weave API/A narratives into the complex racial fabric of America and deconstruct systems of power.
