Who is IDEAAL?
The Institute for the Development and Education of Asian American Leaders (IDEAAL) was founded in September 2003 as a portal to guide Asian American Aggies on the road to becoming strong influencers in the Texas A&M Community. We are a student-directed year-long developmental institute tailored towards freshmen and 1st-year transfer students.
We foster the professional and cultural development of our students through augmenting leadership and progressive, discussion-based meetings. IDEAAL is dedicated to aiding freshman to navigate the overwhelming college atmosphere by providing a safe-space and guidance from carefully-paired mentors. We also serve as a discussion forum focused on how various issues impact Asian-Americans and what we can do to create decisive change. The organization fosters opportunities to develop a sense of belonging on campus, increase awareness of our shared Asian identity and solidify fundamentals for future career growth.
