Asian American and Pacific Islander Equity Initiative

The Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Equity Initiative supports El Camino College Asian American and Pacific Islander students in reaching their educational and career goals through mentorship, workshops, trainings, field trips and learning community classes. This learning community will explore the individual as well as communal Asian American and Pacific Islander experience. In doing so, we will investigate the rise and politicization of Asian American and Pacific Islander identity and how this process intersects with the experience of other marginalized peoples.
