AAPI Summit - Westin Bonaventure Hotel, Los Angeles 4/25/12

The California State University and The College Board convened the inaugural Asian American and Pacific Islander Summit to discuss challenges facing AAPI students.

Themes discussed included weaknesses in support services to address the needs of these students, especially those who are first generation, are underprepared or who have limited English skills. It is not uncommon for some AAPI students to suffer from depression, low self-esteem, high levels of stress and psychological distress. Keynote speakers and panelists discussed culturally appropriate strategies for reaching out, enrolling, retaining and graduating AAPI students.
