Description

We, the students, alumni, and faculty, along with citizens of the state of Wisconsin and those who support diversity in ethnic studies call University of Wisconsin-Madison to establish a Hmong American Studies. The Hmong are underrepresented in the academic curriculum on campus even though they have been in the United States for over 40 years and they make up the largest proportion of the Asian population in Wisconsin. To accomplish the Wisconsin Idea which fosters intercultural learning and to enhance the Diversity Framework which promotes inclusion, it is necessary for the University to establish a Hmong American Studies. We are asking for you to show your support for this certificate by signing our petition. Together we can make HASC happen! Link: http://goo.gl/forms/ZRC1ab6pdp

What does Hmong American mean to you? What do you envision in a Hmong American Studies Certificate Program? Team HASC would like to invite all undergraduate and graduate students to join us in an open dialogue to further discuss these questions. Our ears are open to your opinions and suggestions. Your voice matters to us! Together, we can #makeHASChappen Clarification*: Because we want to provide a safe space for students to express and share their opinions, this event is only for students. We hope to hold more events in the future which will be opened to the greater campus and community.

We’d like to invite any students who would like to share their UW stories onto the HASC page. Please include the hashtags #TheRealUW #Silenced and #HASC . Why? HASC, along with an emerging movement #TheRealUW, wants to create a space for all to speak out about what really happens on campuses in the UW system through social media. Quite frankly, minority students do not have a safe physical place to speak out without being condemned, spat on, or called "a bitch." It doesn’t HAVE to be about discrimination or an injustice. If you just want to share your life story, go right ahead. We want to hear the stories of the real UW and the real students of Wisconsin. We stand with you, and we support you.

Sometimes we encounter situations that we would rather not acknowledge we basically signed up to face--that's the reality of being in the shoes of a person of color. The HASC movement understands those struggles and are fighting to make things right, but this movement won't move unless We Do Something! We as Team HASC are determined to make a change in the campus of Wisconsin, and it will happen if YOU join this movement!!! Our passion as a united voice is what will keep the fire burning! Together, no matter what we face by fighting for the recognition of an underrepresented minority group, we WILL make HASC happen, it WILL become a reality, and our voices WILL be heard at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Please share this movement with those that you know; open up some eyes to see our cause, and ask them to sign the petition (http://goo.gl/forms/uTUW6a5SGU).

HASC Asks: “What do you know about the Hmong people?” Hello Everyone! My name is Kia Vang, and I am a HASC Team member. I went out on the campus of the University of Wisconsin Madison and asked my fellow students, “What do you know about the Hmong People?” And here’s what some of them had to say! -- This video goes far in showing just how unclear and misunderstood the Hmong American culture seems. In order to educate the community and ourselves, there can only be one solution. Please support our cause to bring a Hmong American Studies Certificate to UW-Madison. Here’s the link to the petition: http://goo.gl/forms/mtx2UIOTFZ Spread the word by liking us and sharing our posts on these other sites, Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/uwhasc Webpage: https://uwhasc.wordpress.com/ If you have any questions or you just want to share your ideas with us, directly email us at uwhasc@gmail.com or message us on Facebook. We appreciate all your support! Thanks for watching! Let’s make HASC happen!

https://badgerherald.com/news/2009/10/20/uwmilwaukee-begins-h/ For nearly a decade now, the notion of a Hmong American studies program and the request of Hmong American students have been denied because Hmong studies is “considered too narrow” and there are no “adequate resources and tenured track professors.” The HASC movement will not settle for these excuses and are determined to make a Hmong American studies program a reality. However, we can’t do this without your support! Please sign and share the petition at http://goo.gl/forms/uTUW6a5SGU and spread the word by “liking” and sharing our Facebook page/website. Thanks! :) **Shout out to UW-Milwaukee and all the advocates who crafted the Hmong Diaspora Studies Program! #makeHASChappen

There's an institutional route to getting this Hmong American Studies certificate passed, but can take years--decades even. If we want change now, we have to act NOW. Hmong American students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have been waiting for 40 years to be included in the academic curriculum. With your support, we can change that and establish a Hmong American Certificate at UW. Please sign the petition at:http://goo.gl/forms/uTUW6a5SGU

Hello everyone, we are asking each and everyone of you to sign our petition to establish a Hmong American Certificate or what most universities call a "minor." We believe that this certificate will bring so many great things to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Some of these benefits are 1.) Promoting inclusion 2.) fostering greater understanding of Hmong Americans and 3.) upholding what the University takes so much pride in: that is, the Wisconsin Idea. The Wisconsin idea encourages intercultural competence and social responsibility.
