SAFE is present at one middle school, Samuel Jackman.<br> + <br> + *Weekly Visits During the 2004-2005 school year, SAFE made weekly visits every Friday to all schools with regular visits to Burbank in the Fall. At these visits, we stress the importance of higher education by presenting workshops on academic and cultural topics such as Lunar New Year, food, time management, FAFSA, college applications, and study habits. These visits are great for recruitment because they allow a one-on-one interaction between college students and high school and middle school students.<br> + <br> + *Field Trips SAFE occasionally gathers a group of students and takes them on a university visit.

These primary communities are those ravaged by the Vietnam War, groups from Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. These include Vietnamese, Lao, Cambodian, Chinese, Hmong, and Iu-Mienh.<br> + [[BR]][[BR]]Why do these communities deserve special attention? Imagine yourself as a farmer in Davis. All your life you've been farming and all your skill sets relate to farming and animals. Out of nowhere, the old Southern Confederate states suddenly declare secession again! But this time is different, they have no defined boundaries, and war's leadership are Southern peasants who wish to overthrow the government. A war breaks out and drags on for a few, terrible decades. Although the secessionists don't crush the conventional military, they succeed in frustrating American morale and inflict crushing losses. In a gutsy move, the U.S. arms its rural citizens to fight a guerrilla war. Now, knowing nothing about war and tactics, you overcome overwhelming odds by rescuing thousands of regular troops and crush superior forces in your battles. However, looking at the reality of the situation, people are dying everywhere, and you see no real reason why all of this is happenning. After nearly a generation of fighting, the Washington eventually falls apart under its own weight. As chaos rips the land, you decide that to escape the new regime (in some areas they've already "cleansed" so many people that the regular war looks pleasant), you have to escape the country. You grab your closest family and friends and prepare to flee. But before you do, you must evade vicious patrols that shoot on sight, the wilderness of the countryside, and the ubiquitous starvation. After the exodus, you join millions of other refugees in crammed sardine style ships in sailing to distant places you've never heard of. You're forced to assimilate into a radically different culture, learn a new language, find some means of support, and ultimately raise children. This is just a sample of what the first wave Southeast Asian refugees faced in the U.S.[[FootNote(This scenario is made of bits and pieces of the refugee experience. For example, not everyone fought in the war, but a large majority of the lower classes did. The "cleansing" occured in all three nations, but was most pronounced in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge, where in the span of a few short years, one third of the population had been killed.)]] If such an occurence were to happen stateside, we'd probably at least have the fortune of traveling an open countryside instead of navigating thick jungles and the deadly Mekong River. Better yet, many countries speak English and most have an educated population exposed to some American culture. Of course, I know the scenario sounds ridiculous, such as the notion that the American government can implode, and then the following regime openly torturing its citizens, but this is what happened in Southeast Asia.<br> + <br> + =Coordinators=<br> + Every SRRC component organizes its coordinators in a different manner, but every group has an administrative coordinator, a ["Retention and Recruitment Organizing Committee Representative"] (RROC) (the RROC also functions as a Student Director), and a number of different retention and recruitment coordinators. Some groups have specific duties for coordinators, such as ACE's and Yikal Kuyum's retreat coordinators.<br> + <br> + For the 2005-2006 school year, SAFE staffs a RROC Rep, administrative coordinator, two retention coordinators, two high school outreach coordinators, and one middle school outreach coordinator. ALthough specific duties and areas are laid out, the coordinators function as a team and work collaboratively with each other and their interns to accomplish SAFE's goals.<br> + <br> + '''2006-2007 Coordinators'''<br> + * Azizah Ahmad - ''RROC Rep/Student Director''<br> + * Maiyee Xiong - ''Administration''<br> + * Anne Nugyen and Jenny Hoang- ''High School Outreach''<br> + * Maisee Lor - ''Middle School Outreach''<br> + <br> + '''2005-2006 Coordinators'''[[Image(coord05.jpg, "04 June 2005 staff retreat, with coordinators present and future.

Tarango, and Michelle Villaluz. Kao Vang was SAFE's RROC Rep. Prior to the SRRC, no component of the SRRC had functioned individually except for ["Bridge"]<br> + <br> + [[Image(hsu.jpg, "Seal of the Hmong Student Union.", left, thumbnail)]][[Image(chopsticks.jpg, "Anonymous drawing. An original, slightly modified, hovers over the SAFE desk in 16 South Hall.", 200, right, thumbnail)]]<br> + Much of the SRRC's culture and administrative structure finds roots in UCLA's Student Retention Center. The UCLA SRC makes use of "mother organizations," established student groups that provide support for the fledgling campus department. Many people both oppose and uphold this model of structural support. SAFE is supported by the Hmong Student Union, currently one of the largest and strongest Asian Pacific Islander student UCD clubs. Kao Vang was a member of HSU, and with her initial support, SAFE became predominantly staffed with HSU members. Although that trend continues today, SAFE is beginning to reflect more of the Southeast Asian community. Our goals has always been to further the educational needs of ''all'' Southeast Asians.<br> + <br> + To the outsider, SAFE's most visible reflection of change can be seen in the coordinator titles that we hold. In the past there have been rigid titles that attempted to clearly define a person's role in managing strategic goals. It's not clear how strongly past coordinators adhered to those titles, but titles are beginning to matter less and less in the SRRC. We commonly refer to each other as being "resource, retention, or recruitment" instead of our formal titles. You can also notice how different areas fade and fold into others, especially the "transfer student" and "peer mentorship" positions. Recently, SAFE has decided that these are auxilary to the programs of other campus organizations. For example, clubs on campus have better and stronger peer mentorship programs than SAFE, owing strongly to the fact that those clubs are easier to identify with than SAFE. Since there are so few Southeast Asian transfers on campus, SAFE has decided to scrap a formal component and serve that population on a case-by-case basis.<br> + <br> + Diane Yang is currently the youngest RROC member, in terms of both age (DOB 07 November 1986) and school year (sophomore). Correct me if I'm wrong, but she's also the youngest RROC ever to sit on the committee.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Southeast Asians Furthering Educationhttp://daviswiki.org/Southeast_Asians_Furthering_Education2010-08-28 22:29:26RitchieLeePage deleted (Outdated, non updated information) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Southeast Asians Furthering Education<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- [[Image(safe04_05.jpg, "The 04-05 SAFE logo graces the year's t-shirt.", right, thumbnail)]]<br> - <br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#13B468'&gt;'''Location'''||<br> - ||16 ["South Hall"], the "Dungeon"||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#13EB38'&gt;'''Office Contact'''||<br> - ||530.754.6835||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#13B468'&gt;'''Listserv'''||<br> - ||safestaff@ucdavis.edu||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#13EB38'&gt;'''Website'''||<br> - ||[http://thecenter.ucdavis.edu/safe/]||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#13B468'&gt;'''Facebook'''||<br> - ||[http://ucdavis.facebook.com/group_profile.php?gid=5987]||<br> - <br> - Southeast Asians Furthering Education (SAFE) is part of the ["Student Recruitment and Retention Center"].<br> - <br> - SAFE aims to empower Southeast Asian students to actively pursue higher education, retain Southeast Asian students currently enrolled in institutions of higher learning and engage parents in the educational process.

Some groups have specific duties for coordinators, such as ACE's and Yikal Kuyum's retreat coordinators.<br> - <br> - For the 2005-2006 school year, SAFE staffs a RROC Rep, administrative coordinator, two retention coordinators, two high school outreach coordinators, and one middle school outreach coordinator. ALthough specific duties and areas are laid out, the coordinators function as a team and work collaboratively with each other and their interns to accomplish SAFE's goals.<br> - <br> - '''2006-2007 Coordinators'''<br> - * Azizah Ahmad - ''RROC Rep/Student Director''<br> - * Maiyee Xiong - ''Administration''<br> - * Anne Nugyen and Jenny Hoang- ''High School Outreach''<br> - * Maisee Lor - ''Middle School Outreach''<br> - <br> - '''2005-2006 Coordinators'''[[Image(coord05.jpg, "04 June 2005 staff retreat, with coordinators present and future.

Tarango, and Michelle Villaluz. Kao Vang was SAFE's RROC Rep. Prior to the SRRC, no component of the SRRC had functioned individually except for ["Bridge"]<br> - <br> - [[Image(hsu.jpg, "Seal of the Hmong Student Union.", left, thumbnail)]][[Image(chopsticks.jpg, "Anonymous drawing. An original, slightly modified, hovers over the SAFE desk in 16 South Hall.", 200, right, thumbnail)]]<br> - Much of the SRRC's culture and administrative structure finds roots in UCLA's Student Retention Center. The UCLA SRC makes use of "mother organizations," established student groups that provide support for the fledgling campus department. Many people both oppose and uphold this model of structural support. SAFE is supported by the Hmong Student Union, currently one of the largest and strongest Asian Pacific Islander student UCD clubs. Kao Vang was a member of HSU, and with her initial support, SAFE became predominantly staffed with HSU members. Although that trend continues today, SAFE is beginning to reflect more of the Southeast Asian community. Our goals has always been to further the educational needs of ''all'' Southeast Asians.<br> - <br> - To the outsider, SAFE's most visible reflection of change can be seen in the coordinator titles that we hold. In the past there have been rigid titles that attempted to clearly define a person's role in managing strategic goals. It's not clear how strongly past coordinators adhered to those titles, but titles are beginning to matter less and less in the SRRC. We commonly refer to each other as being "resource, retention, or recruitment" instead of our formal titles. You can also notice how different areas fade and fold into others, especially the "transfer student" and "peer mentorship" positions. Recently, SAFE has decided that these are auxilary to the programs of other campus organizations. For example, clubs on campus have better and stronger peer mentorship programs than SAFE, owing strongly to the fact that those clubs are easier to identify with than SAFE. Since there are so few Southeast Asian transfers on campus, SAFE has decided to scrap a formal component and serve that population on a case-by-case basis.<br> - <br> - Diane Yang is currently the youngest RROC member, in terms of both age (DOB 07 November 1986) and school year (sophomore). Correct me if I'm wrong, but she's also the youngest RROC ever to sit on the committee.</span> </td> <td> <span>+ deleted</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Southeast Asians Furthering Educationhttp://daviswiki.org/Southeast_Asians_Furthering_Education2008-09-13 10:03:13JasonAllerlink fix <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Southeast Asians Furthering Education<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 72: </td> <td> Line 72: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * ["MandeepDhaliwal"] - ''Middle School Outreach'' </td> <td> <span>+</span> * ["<span>Users/</span>MandeepDhaliwal"] - ''Middle School Outreach'' </td> </tr> </table> </div> Southeast Asians Furthering Educationhttp://daviswiki.org/Southeast_Asians_Furthering_Education2007-09-26 12:48:46NumiaCairaguassrrc to the top + removing broken link <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Southeast Asians Furthering Education<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 14: </td> <td> Line 14: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- [http://spac.ucdavis.edu/safe/ </span>SAFE] aims to empower Southeast Asian students to actively pursue higher education, retain Southeast Asian students currently enrolled in institutions of higher learning and engage parents in the educational process.

The UCLA SRC makes use of "mother organizations," established student groups that provide support for the fledgling campus department. This model of structural support is controversial with many supporters and critics for both for and against it. SAFE is supported by the Hmong Student Union, currently one of the largest and strongest Asian Pacific Islander student clubs at UCD. Kao Vang was a member of HSU, and with her initial support, SAFE became predominantly staffed with HSU members. That trend continues today.
