SAFE: Southeast Asians Furthering Education

  • SAFE Staff 2014-15

Southeast Asians Furthering Education (SAFE) was created by the Hmong Student Union in 2000 to build a strong Southeast Asian community within the UC Davis campus and beyond, and to provide much needed services and support to the community. To achieve these goals, SAFE focuses on three aspects: recruitment, retention and resource.

RECRUITMENT: SAFE outreaches to middle and high schools in the greater Sacramento Area to encourage students to pursue various options of higher education.

RETENTION:  SAFE offers holistic support to students in higher education and on the path to graduation, while spreading cultural and community awareness and advocating for social justice and educational equity.

RESOURCE: SAFE serves as a resource to UC Davis students by spreading awareness of SEA issues and providing resources to address those issues.
