The University of Maryland Baltimore County's African Students Association was a vision formed by a group of African students on the campus, attempting to bring a sense of community and belonging to a growing amount of African students on the campus. The goal of this establishment then expanded to promote cultural awareness of Africa and its people on the campus, to advocate a strong leadership in organizations on campus and of course to build and bond with fellow African students. The African Students Association (or ASA as it is commonly referred to) is open to all UMBC students. As Africa is a continent of many different ethnic groups, cultures, and religions, those students who express an interest in Africa and would like to learn more are encouraged to participate in this organization.
Various countries in Africa including Nigeria, Cameroon, Liberia, Tanzania, South Africa, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Zambia, Botswana and many others are represented in UMBC's ASA. The students in the group are of a diverse and energetic nature. ASA prides itself on being a major cultural establishment for the students of UMBC. Through the pursuit of higher education, academic excellence, community service and networking with other students through the African Diaspora we are able to unite and promote unity amongst ourselves.
