Southeast Asians Furthering Education (SAFE)was created by the Hmong Student Union in 2000 to provide much needed services and support to the Southeast Asian community on the University of California, Davis campus. Southeast Asian identified students on campus make up only about 6.5% of the UC Davis student population. Because of these low numbers, SAFE aims to build a strong Southeast Asian community on and off campus. To achieve these goals, SAFE focuses on three aspects: recruitment, retention and resource.
RECRUITMENT: We travel to middle and high schools in the greater Sacramento Area to encourage students to pursue various options of higher education.
RETENTION: When students get into higher education, our goal is for them to be successful and graduate. We offer them holistic support while spreading cultural and community awareness and advocating for social justice and educational equity.
RESOURCE: We also serve as a resource to students on the UC Davis campus by spreading awareness of SEA issues and providing resources to address those issues.
