Hmong Americans Involving Students
The purpose of our club is to promote cultural understanding of Hmong culture on the CSB/SJU campus, and to build a community across all cultural contexts. HAIS is dedicated to establishing and maintaining Hmong culture on campus as well as being a support group and resource to enable students to become effective leaders in their community.
HAIS was founded in April 2011 by College of Saint Benedict students who are committed to preserving and learning about Hmong culture as well as giving back to their community in the form of service and education.
The acronym HAIS stands for Hmong Americans Involving Students. "Hais", in Hmong, means TO SPEAK. Speaking out has long been regarded as a form of empowerment, and that is exactly what HAIS wants to do; HAIS will empower people to make positive changes in their community through service, education and awareness.
