AACRAO Asian American and Pacific Islander Caucus

Mission Statement

The Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Caucus provides a communal space for members who are ready to discuss issues, developments and initiatives for individuals of Asian and Pacific Islander descent in higher education. They work to educate other members about the history, contributions and concerns of Asian American and Pacific Islanders.

The AAPI Caucus connects via the Exchange, meets at the monthly Caucus Gatherings, writes articles for AACRAO Connect, and hosts webinars throughout the year. They also convene at AACRAO’s Annual Meeting. The Caucus is open to all AACRAO members.
