Welcome Members!

Our Mission:

We, the Hmong Student Association, strive to promote a higher education within the Hmong community and provide a safe empowering environment for students to express their opinions. We are devoted to inspire the Hmong population to further educate themselves and the local community about our culture, heritage, and traditions.


The University of California, Santa Cruz Hmong Student Association was founded in the 1980’s and once was a strongly involved organization on the community. UCSC HSA died out a few decades later due to a lack of Hmong students and inactivity. In the Fall of 2006, a Hmong student Kia Vue with a core group of fifteen members brought life back into the campus’ Hmong culture. Thanks to the cooperation of new and old members, HSA continues to live on today to provide a welcoming community and let its voice be heard.
