The Pan Asian Council strives to:

  • Address the diverse needs and concerns of Pan Asian members on campus

  • Act as a voice for Pan Asian-identified faculty, staff, and students

  • Serve as a formalized liaison between staff, faculty, students, and the greater University of Iowa communities

  • Support the University of Iowa effort towards recruitment and retention of faculty, staff and students


The University of Iowa Pan Asian Council was established in the Fall of 2019 by a group of faculty, staff, and graduate students in response to issues raised by their constituencies who historically have been underrepresented in institutions of higher education.
