Pilipino Council of the Mabuhay Collective (PCMC) Logo

Founded in 2009, the Pilipino Council of the Mabuhay Collective (PCMC) is a council of students that support, facilitate, and unite the Pilipinx and Pilipinx-American community at UCLA. The Mabuhay Collective is comprised of 15 Pilipinx student organizations based at UCLA: Anakbayan at UCLA, Kabalikat Kore, Kappa Psi Epsilon, Pilipino Recruitment and Enrichment Program, Pilipino Transfer Student Partnership, Pilipinos for Community Health, Pilipinos in Engineering and Science, Pilipinx Living Learning Community, Pilipinx Pre-Law Pipeline, Samahang Modern, Samahang Pilipino, Samahang Pilipino Advancing Community Empowerment, Samahang Pilipino Cultural Night, Samahang Pilipino Education and Retention, and Tinig Choral. The Council, which consists of co-equal Cabinet and Senate branches, brings together its 15 organizations and 900+ students. PCMC is founded on five pillars - academia, culture, politics, profession, and society. These ideas underpin the PCMC motto: “Magkasama Bilang Isa, Mga Tao,” or “Together As One, The People.” In addition to serving as the supporting body of the Collective, PCMC plans events such as Pilipino Welcome Reception, Pilipino-American History Month Celebration, MabuFest, and Pilipino Farewell Reception. PCMC also facilitates the Pilipinos Advancing Leadership Success (PALS) internship on a quarterly basis, allowing student interns to shadow current Cabinet members, participate fully in meetings, and contribute to event planning. PALS interns are able to learn more about topics such as the Pilipinx community at UCLA and beyond, Pilipino history, mental health practices, and outlooks from an Asian-American perspective.
