Persian Academic and Cultural Student Association is a nonprofit, nonreligious and nonpartisan student organization at the University of Southern California. PACSA, founded in 2011, prides itself in being one of most active participants of the culturally diverse Trojan community. We aim to introduce Iranian culture and heritage by sponsoring and organizing multiple events on campus each semester; they include concerts, presentations, art exhibitions, theatrical, music and dance performances, film screenings, lectures and workshops. Our hope is to create an atmosphere in which meaningful connections can be made among Iranians, the diaspora community, and other cultures in USC and Los Angeles. Each Event also serves as a social hub for all Persian language speakers from various nationalities,
