About aasu

The African American Student Union has five fundamental responsibilities: to provide a voice for black students at the Georgia Institute of Technology, to promote social and cultural awareness in the Georgia Tech community, to improve and maintain relationships between African-American students and students of other ethnic backgrounds, to provide a social and cultural outlet for its members, and to take an active part in the activities of the Institute. We go about attending to these responsibilities within the framework set forth by our eight Pillars of Unity: Self Cultural Awareness, Effective Leadership, Community Service, Scholarship, Coalition Building, Social Awareness, Political Awareness, Economic Empowerment.
