The Chin Student Union was formed in 1946, by a few Chin students at the Rangoon University, to participate in the movement to achieve independence from the British Empire. After the student uprising in Burma on August 8, 1988, leaders were exiled to India and the organization was reformed in 1995. The Chin Student Union’s aims and objectives include helping with the educational and social problems of the Chin people; preserving and promoting the Chin literature, culture, and tradition; and advocating for equality and self-determination in the Union of Burma together with other ethnic organizations.
