Society for Asian American Graduate Affairs at Cornell University
Welcome to SAAGA! We are a graduate student organization dedicated to advocating for graduate students who identify as members and/or are allies of the Asian and/or Asian American community. SAAGA works to create a network of support to better address academic, career, and social justice issues related to the Asian and Asian American graduate student population. SAAGA strives to create a safe space for its members to socialize with others, share academic and professional advice, and discuss issues of race, ethnicity, politics, and culture as they pertain to Asians/Asian Americans. Activities include invited lectures, discussions, film screenings, collaborations with other similar groups on campus, networking events, and more.
We provide a safe space for Asian Americans to discuss their unique struggles as graduate students, teaching assistants, and research assistants.
We believe in bringing diversity, inclusion, and equality into higher education, the workforce, or wherever else our paths may lead us.
We stand with all underrepresented groups, including but not limited to BIPOC, disabled, and LGBTQ communities and are committed to using our privilege to stand for those who have less of it.
