Transcript Promoting Ethnicity Lana Khawaja Racial harmony under the Council of Ethnic Organizations has lead to yearly growth since its founding in 1972. "We are more of a department than an organization!' said CEO Director Lynn Lee. "Our mission statement is to put together events and programs that discuss multiculturalism. "We live in a multicultural community that would run more smoothly if we all worked together!' Lee said. The department consists of five main umbrella groups with approximately 50 student organizations underneath them. The five umbrella groups are the Asian Students' Association, the Chinese Students' Association, the Hispanic Students' Association, the International Students' Organization and Pan Afrikan People for Progressive Action. "The difference between a student organization and becoming an umbrella group is meeting the (umbrella group) requirements!' Lee said. One of these requirements is to create at least two programs a semester that promote the cultural heritage of the organization. The Hispanic Students' Association puts together Tejano dances and rallies, said President Laura Balboa. "This past November, we constructed a Tejano Student Unity Conference in which we invited Latinos from across the country and discussed issues pertinent to the Latino community," Balboa said. Discussion topics included affirmative action issues and gangs in the area. In April, HSA also brought Ruby Nelda Perez to the University of Houston to perform her one-act play, titled, "A Womans Work!' The umbrella groups are independent in their programming, but ideas must be approved by the CEO executive board, which assists the groups with programs. The board consists of the Director, the Assistant Director (who acts as Chief Financial Officer) and the presidents of the five umbrella groups. "We live in a multi-cultural community that would run more smoothly if we all worked together."
