Recognizing the Full Humanity of Our Asian and Pacific Islander Student Communities in the California Community Colleges
Date: Tuesday, February 7th, 2023
Time: 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Students who identify as Asian and Pacific Islander make up around 13% of California Community College students. Asian and Pacific Islanders are the fastest-growing ethnic group in California since 2011, growing an additional 25% statewide. After the pandemic, Asian and Pacific Islanders also experienced an explosive increase in racially motivated incidents. These increases should motivate faculty to look at what faculty can do on campus to support our Asian and Pacific Islander student communities. During this webinar, we will discuss some issues currently facing Asian and Pacific Islander students, and pedagogical and student services strategies and supports that faculty can take back to campus.
