Asian and Pacific American Heritage Month

Asian and Pacific American Heritage Month is celebrated in May throughout the United States to recognize the contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and celebrate the group's heritage and culture.

On campus, we celebrate with a month of events planned by our wonderful multicultural organizations between the middle of October to mid-November, so that more students will be on campus to join in the festivities!
