Pan African Student Organization (PASO)

Pan African Student Organization (PASO)

The Pan African Student Organization is open to students of African descent and those who wish to minister/learn about those communities of African descent throughout our global community. PASO meets regularly for discussion and other activities/events.


  • To provide a forum and community in which students of African descent can explore and share the richness of their home cultures, identifying shared elements of African culture and the unique histories and gifts of diverse African peoples.
  • To provide an environment for greater dialogue and understanding of the diversity within the African global community.
  • To assist members in the nurturing of the formation of their missionary and ministerial vocations and spiritual growth.
  • To create a sense of community among the African, African American, African Caribbean, African Latino, and other students from African based cultures to the world and church.
  • To assist Catholic Theological Union in adequately addressing the special and theological/educational/ministerial needs of Pan African students.
