Pacific Islander Initiative

Mission Statement

The Pacific Islander (PI) Initiative is a student-centered program started through deep student activism at the University of California, Berkeley. It exists to support folks of Pacific Islander/Pasifika/Oceanian ancestry both on and off campus. The PI Initiative promotes social justice in PI communities by offering programs and resources that uniquely center PI cultures. Our goal is to empower PI communities at UC Berkeley and within the greater Bay Area to (1) develop and maintain cultural interests, (2) promote cross-cultural community building, and (3) address disparities by increasing access to relevant and responsive resources. 

Goals

  • serving as a campus resource on PI issues and events

  • promoting multicultural awareness through student interaction and community involvement

  • promoting empowerment and self-esteem through community building on and off campus

  • promoting retention and addressing underrepresentation

  • sponsoring a diverse set of events, projects, programs, and activities
