Welcome to the African Students Association. The African Student Association (AFSA) is an organization that was created out of the need for unity, camaraderie, fellowship and the desire to work together. AFSA is open to anybody that is interested in learning about and enjoying African culture. AFSA prides itself in creating a sense of community for students of African descent on campus and strives to educate its campus community on Africa-related topics. The African Students’ Association aims to be a social forum for all students of African descent as well as all students who are interested in sharing the African experience at Arizona State University. Article II – Non-Discrimination Statement Membership and all privileges, including voting and officer positions, must be extended to all students without regard to age, ethnicity, gender, disability, color, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 106.14, makes an exception for social fraternities and sororities, in regard to gender, for membership criteria. Religious student organizations will not be denied registration solely because they limit membership or leadership positions to students who share the same religious beliefs. These groups, however, may not discriminate in membership or leadership on any other prohibited basis (i.e., age, ethnicity, gender, disability, color, national origin, race, sexual orientation, or veteran status).
