What is ITASA?

The Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Student Association (ITASA) is a national non-profit, student-run organization that connects. inspires. and empowers the Taiwanese American student community. ITASA’s annual West Coast Conference attracts nearly 200 undergraduates nationwide who attend workshops led by prominent Taiwanese American speakers, social events to meet fellow students, and interactive discussions about culture, identity, education, and leadership.


The purpose of this conference is to connect Taiwanese American students with each other; inspire by inviting leaders in the Taiwanese American community that live interesting and unique life trajectories to speak and share; empower change and action by entrusting a sense of purpose and social responsibility.
