TEACH: A Call to Action for Asian Pacific Islanders

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

4-6pm in Condon Hall 711E

An event dedicated to deconstructing the issues surrounding AAPI education attainment & the importance of API teachers in education

One of the most misunderstood trends in AAPI educational achievement is educational attainment.

With the number of AAPI college students at its highest, and growing at one of the fastest ratesof any major racial populationin American higher education, it is important to understand the experiences and outcomes of this unique student population. Among broader trends in AAPI college participation, a key issue is the varying rates that occur among each ethnic group.”

“For many AAPI students, barriers to education begin at an early age creating a poor pipeline to higher education.”
