Asian, Pacific Island, Desi, & Arab

APIDA stands for Asian, Pacific Island, Desi, and Arab. It is an acronym used to represent all the specific identities within the Asian cultural diaspora, some which have been historically excluded as community members due to Western influence and imperialism. The Student Center for Equity and Inclusion is dedicated to providing programs and opportunities that empower, celebrate, and support all identities within the APIDA community. About Us

Get Connected

Our staff, alumni, and student leaders have initiated several groups which serve as venues for reflection, personal growth, and validation. These groups often become valuable networks that help students rely upon and uphold one another.
