Asian/Asian American/Pacific Islander

With direction and advice from the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, the Center for Career Development created the Asian/Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) Affinity Community. This community’s goal is to provide resources focused on supporting students who self-identify as Asian, Asian American, or Pacific Islander.  

AAPI students and alumni encounter unique challenges throughout the career development and job search processes and in the workplace.
