The Pan-Asian American Community House opened in the fall of 2000 in response to students' calls for a cultural resource center at the University of Pennsylvania where South Asian, East Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander cultures could be celebrated. PAACH is a community center that develops and implements innovative programs for leadership development and community service in close collaboration with Asian American student and community groups.

Kusum Soin: Honoring 15 Years of Community

In celebrating PAACH's 15 Year Anniversary, we honored Kusum Soin for her 15 dedicated years of work at PAACH. Throughout the years, she has connected, mentored, and inspired so many generations of students who have passed through PAACH's doorways. In honoring her invaluable contributions to this house and the University, we, the Penn alumni and friends of PAACH, have initiated this gift campaign so that Kusum's impact will live on in perpetuity, helping students for many more generations to come.

We've specifically chosen to direct our gifts to the PAACH Endowment Fund and welcome everyone to make a donation to this campaign at our fundraising website.

Thank you for everything you've done for us, Kusum!
