Pilipinx-Americans in Social Studies
Tell Me More


Pilipino-Americans in Social Studies (PASS) is an organization that focuses on fields relating to business, law, the social sciences, and social ecology. PASS is a "community within a community" striving to increase the representation of Pilipinos/Filipinos and other minorities within professional industries while providing a social support network that promotes academic excellence, career development, community involvement, and leadership opportunities for students in the UC Irvine and Pilipino/Filipino communities.

PASS meets every WEDNESDAY at 6PM in the Dr. White Room


PASS operates off of five pillars, learn more about them below!


We believe that minorities belong in the professional workplace, and we want to provide resources for them to get there.


PASS provides programs that stress leadership and practice leadership skills through Mentorship, Internship, and High School Outreach.


PASS hosts study hours and peer tutoring to help members of the organization become better organized and excel in their academic career here at UCI.


Projects to give back to the community are scattered through the year and give members multiple ways to get involved in the community.

Social Support

Being one of the smaller orgs on campus, we pride ourselves in our "tight knit" atmosphere and small family dynamic. We try to strenthen this through our social activities and workshops to better support each other.
