History of Pilipino American Coalition

The Pilipino American Coalition was formed by several Pilipino students who enrolled in Asian American Studies classes during the Fall 1971. With the guidance and help of Dr. Lloyd Inui, the head of the Asian American Studies Department at CSULB, Dr. Inui encouraged 7 Pilipino students from two of his classes to form the PAC in 1972.

Today, PAC has become one of the largest and most influential Pilipino organizations in the state of California. Our purpose is to encourage and initiate programs that will be beneficial socially, academically, and culturally to our members and the Pilipino-American community. Pilipino’s consist of one of the largest Asian groups at California State University, Long Beach and with membership at an all time high, PAC will continue to be a strong organization for years to come.

“In PAC, we’re One Unit. One Club. One Family.”
