The Pacific Islander Student Commission was started in the late 1990’s, when Pacific Islander students at the University of Washington started a movement to create a new ASUW commission that would serve a growing Pacific Islander student population. The students from Fiji, Guam, Hawai'i, New Zealand, Samoa and the Philippines felt that the existing Asian Student Commission did not address the needs of their cultures and sought to identify ways in which a new commission would provide greater support for their communities. Then on March 9th, 2000, the ASUW Board of Directors passed BOD BILL #002, which created the Pacific Islander Student Commission.
The Pacific Islander Student Commission is made up of Filipino American Student Association (FASA), Hui Hoaloha 'Ulana Club (HUI), Micronesian Islands Club (MIC), and the Polynesian Student Alliance (PSA).
