Have you ever found a welcoming and lasting community through a culture-themed student club? Have you ever felt excluded from that organization due to a lack of cultural or social identification with the mission and the members of the club?
With the ever growing diversity of the student community at NYU, more students are finding it increasingly difficult to join or create a stable community whom they can relate to. While there is a plethora of clubs and organizations on campus that address niche interests, some may find their overarching missions and events to be exclusive and stigmatizing.
APA BRIDGE hopes to connect the various students and organizations through the first Asian/Pacific/American Leadership Summit (APALS). Consisting of student-leader panel discussion, speakers, and a leadership workshop, APALS will address the social and cultural issues of representation and their effects through the lens of the NYU student A/P/A community. Participating clubs will include Asian Heritage Month, the Asian American Women’s Alliance, the Asian American Theater Alliance, and more.
This event is open to all students and community members at NYU regardless of self-identification. RSVP here.
Asian Pacific Americans Building Relationships to Inspire Diversity, Growth, and Empowerment (APA BRIDGE) is a year-long student-run leadership program affiliated with the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University.
