The Asian Pacific Islander Knowledge Community seeks to educate and inform NASPA members about the current issues, trends, and research facing Asian Pacific Islanders in higher education. We actively nurture and support the professional development of students and professionals through an offering an e-mentoring program, producing and sharing research, encouraging dialogue via online forums around issues facing our Asian Pacific Islander communities, and providing leadership and involvement opportunities within the KC. As one of the ethnicity-based knowledge communities, this KC is committed to honoring and respecting the multiple and diverse communities that exist within the greater Asian Pacific Islander category and strives to increase knowledge and understanding with the student affairs profession.
