Welcome to APASS!
The Asian Pacific American Student Services (APASS) cultivates a space to explore, celebrate, and embrace Asian American and Pacific Islander identities, heritage, and community. APASS organizes events, workshops and resources related to AAPI identity, culture and leadership. We invite you to explore our space, programs, and get involved!
APASS has a two-fold mission: to facilitate APIDA participation, dialogue, community-building, and empowerment, while at the same time, to serve as a source of cross-cultural educational programming for the entire campus.
We understand the distinctive needs among the different ethnicities within our APIDA community, and we succeed in deriving strength from our diversity. We believe in a pan-Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American identity that is rooted in the Civil Rights Movement and continues to grow in the transnational sphere.
Our programs are designed to educate, engage and empower students. We strive to create unique learning opportunities that include mentorship, leadership development, advocacy, and community involvement.
Our programs also provide learning opportunities about the APIDA identity, experience, and community.
