Anteaters In Action (AIA) is a commission within ASUCI’s Office of the Internal Vice President that aims to promote the importance of volunteerism by offering UCI students numerous volunteer opportunities to participate in. Our goal is to host a variety of volunteer events that will positively impact not only UCI students, but also many different groups within our community.
Our mission is to encourage students to acknowledge and appreciate the value in community service. We want to distinguish the difference between simply participating in community service events in comparison to understanding why it is important to give back to your community. It’s admirable to dedicate hours to volunteering, but it’s humbling and rewarding to dedicate passion to volunteering. AIA hopes to provide many meaningful volunteer experiences that will closer connect UCI students to the diverse people within their community.
A Message from Your Commissioner
Hi everyone, my name is Malinda and I am ASUCI’s Anteaters In Action (AIA) Commissioner! I am a fourth-year and an English major with an Asian American Studies minor. I’ve been involved with a number of things at UCI, but the experiences that has made an impact on me are most often my involvements with community service. One of my passions includes volunteering and giving back to my community, so I’m super excited and humbled to have this position and to be able to plan and host community service events along with my amazing interns! My motto is: “Giving is the best communication.” So I hope to create meaningful events that will positively impact UCI students and encourage them to also take action in spreading positivity within their community.
