AANAPISI Bridge Initiative (ABI)

The AANAPISI Bridge Initiative (ABI) is a partnership between Borough of Manhattan Community College and Hunter College that provides student programs and faculty development to support the diverse needs of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI students) at BMCC and Hunter, including those who are first-generation college goers, English Language Learners, and students from low-income and immigrant families. 

ABI is funded through a five-year collaborative grant (2020-2025) from the U.S. Department of Education’s Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) program.
