Dear Campus Community,  

The month of May presents a welcome opportunity to honor and celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) heritage. The term “Asian American and Pacific Islander” is officially designated; but we acknowledge that this term is used to encompass a myriad of different countries, communities, and cultures. Some also refer to this month as Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month (APIDA). Notwithstanding the designation, we honor and affirm each community for its unique and multifaceted story. To our students, faculty, staff, and administrators, and alums, we see you, and we appreciate all you bring to our university and the larger community.  Read more
