Katipunan at College of San Mateo is a Filipinx/Filipinx-American student organization and learning community that aims to strengthen our community and embrace each other’s individual narratives.
We provide academic and personal support to empower Katipunan students to reach their educational and career goals as well as foster a safe space for career, major, and personal exploration and reflection. We also cultivate spaces for students to actively participate within the classroom, on the CSM campus, and most importantly, in the communities with which they identify.
Katipunan aims to strengthen persistence and retention of Filipinx/Filipinx-American students at College of San Mateo semester-to-semester and year-to-year all the way through to degree/goal completion. Ultimately, Katipunan aims to facilitate the growth of critically conscious individuals through culturally sustaining pedagogy and intentional relationship building with community organizations beyond CSM.
