Join the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities for a special webinar in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month featuring five Asian Pacific American leaders in public higher education. Register here!

During this event, the featured speakers will discuss their own personal journey from growing up to becoming campus leaders. They will discuss the important role Asian American and Pacific Islander students, faculty, and staff play on campus and in their communities as well as how university leadership can best support them while recognizing and honoring the diverse composition of the community. The conversation will also explore the troubling increase in verbal attacks and physical violence against members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, including how campuses are working to raise awareness and ensure the safety for the AAPI community while fostering an inclusive environment.
