Pasifika Cultural Center
The Ohana Association (TOA)
TOA is organized to address issues concerning those of Pacific Island backgrounds, educate people about the diverse Pacific Islands’ heritages and traditions, as well as recruit, retain and graduate fellow students. TOA officers, members and advisors make great efforts implementing meaningful programming to increase and improve avenues of communication and interaction between the university and the Pacific Islander community. We also work to organize cultural and social events to enhance the campus experience and education of WSU with a more focused lens on the university's Pacific Islander (PI) constituency. TOA strives to welcome new PI students to Weber State and provide a forum where they can openly express their experiences and thoughts while offering them moral support and peer guidance. Although TOA is primarily composed of students from the Pacific Islands, they strongly encourage everyone around to participate. While enrolled, TOA is a home base for students at WSU to harness and develop a passion to become active ambassadors for Pacific Islander peoples that carry further than the institution and out into society as a whole.
As of 2023, Weber State University is restructuring how we serve our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) students with a cultural center model, which will foster belonging, support cultural identity and encourage student leadership. Check back regularly as we continue to grow to serve our students even better. Until each center is open, we will continue to support students in the Student Services Center (SC 150).
