Overview

Self-reported by organization

At ITASA, we believe that the preservation of Taiwanese culture is a cause worth fighting for. Taiwan itself is a vibrant island, filled with breath-taking landmarks, delicious food, and exciting night-life. We at ITASA would like to share Taiwanese culture with as many people as possible so that our community can continue to grow and flourish.

Today, the Taiwanese American community is stronger than ever, with musicians, actors, writers that all take an active part in its growth. Our college community in particular has greatly increased in size, and it now boasts over a hundred Taiwanese American student organizations in colleges across the country. We work every day to bring the Taiwanese American community closer to anyone and everyone interested in Taiwan, no matter where they live.
