AA&PI Student Services Programming
The goal of AA&PI Student servces is to improve and expand SF State’s capacity to serve Asian American and Native American Pacific Islanders through the following strategies:
- Broad dissemination of information and targeted support to AA&PI Students and community.
- Student workshops and activites with culturally-relevant and community-responsive practices.
- Partnerships with faculty and university programs
There are four pillars that frame our purpose as a department:
Our focus is on leadership, equity, social justice, and writing with a purpose.
In our spaces, we help students to think about internships, scholarships, and financial aid as they navigate the institution. As well as build authentic and meaningful relationships with their faculty members and each other.
While the ultimate goal is to help students succeed to graduation, we want to make sure our students are prepared for their career goals and/or graduate school.
In our learning communities, we understand praxis as an ongoing, reflective approach to taking action. We encourage our students, staff, and faculty to research, respond, and reflect to address our needs collectively on campus and in our communities.
