With the increase in hate crimes and violence directed towards our East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander communities, many students are experiencing stress when commuting and being in public areas. On Tuesday October 11, join us for an in-person safety training from 4 - 6pm. Learn techniques and skills focused on situational awareness and verbal de-escalation. Stay for a mental health debrief space to discuss experiences and thoughts about training if you'd like (optional).

Did you know that this year marks 15 years since Congress established the Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISI) program?

The goal of this was and is to improve the availability and quality of postsecondary education programs to support low-income, first generation Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) students.

We are excited to spread the word about AANAPISI Week (September 26 – October 02, 2022). Stay tuned for more!
