Mission Statement: What is MASA?
The Mexican American Student Association (MASA) was founded in 1965 as a community outreach and tutorial service organization.The Mexican-American Student Association is an I.R.A funded organization.I.R.A. stands for Instructionally Related Activities.
I.R.A. fee funding support is allocated to certain programs, clubs, and organizations, one of the organizations being M.A.S.A. Thus, we are non-state funded and exist because of auxiliary fees students pay and would not exist without the students' funding. MASA is connected with EWS 280s. Its purpose was threefold:
- To tutor elementary, junior high, and high school students. - To act as a support group for Cal Poly students who were in need of peer counseling. - To provide members with community based organizations with a center network.
Today MASA has grown into much more, it is the only club to have its own house on campus and an organization commited towards the success of many first-generation hispanic students. Want to meet new people or network with similarly career oriented students? Then MASA might just be your new home here on Cal Poly Pomona's campus.
