The Ohana Association



Our goal is to extend, develop, and enhance support systems contributing to the success of all students, with a focused emphasis on the Pacific Islander students, by implementing various efforts and programs which are designed to promote academic, educational, social, and cultural achievemen. 


Weber State University’s Pacific Islander Club, The Ohana Association (TOA) is organized to address issues concerning those of Pacific Island backgrounds, educate people about the diverse Pacific heritages and traditions, as well as recruit, retain, and graduate fellow students. TOA officers, members, and advisor make great efforts implementing meaningful programming to increase and improve avenues of communication and interaction between the university and Pacific Islander community, as well as organize cultural and social events to enhance the campus experience and education of WSU with a more focused lense on the universities Pacific Islander 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 comprised of students from the Pacific Islands, they strongly encourage everyone around to participate. TOA pushes to provide a safe space that fosters a sense of belonging and promotes valuable relationships. While enrolled, TOA is a homebase 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 to a variety of communities and society as a whole.
