We are a cultural organization at Yale University dedicated to spreading awareness of the cultural, political, and social aspects of Taiwanese Americans. But more than that, our mission is to strengthen the Asian American Community at Yale by facilitation of social interactions among the students. Above all we are a society of friends! The Taiwanese American Society is non-exclusive and welcomes with open arms all who are interested in Taiwan, China, or East Asian culture in general.
History of TAS
The Taiwanese Club was originally founded in 1991 to foster an awareness of Taiwanese language and culture at Yale University. From that time this group has evolved a great deal as a student organization. In fact, this organization was recently renamed the Yale College Taiwanese American Society (TAS for short) in order to integrate the American dimension that all possess from living or studying in this country.
