Key Programs

Asian American Mentoring Program (AAMP)

AAMP provides a space for students to find community and explore what it means to identify as part of the Asian American community through discussions, socials, and mentor-mentee relationships.

AAMP participants are placed into group consisting of two mentees and two mentors. Fall Term starts with an opening orientation, followed by monthly discussions and socials. Groups are encouraged to meet informally throughout the year.

Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American Pacific American Heritage Month (AAPIHM) is a month-long celebration that occurs during the month of May. The purpose of AAPIHM is to celebrate, honor, and educate the Dartmouth community on issues of Asian Pacific American identity, history, and culture through educational programs, speakers, and community-building events. Formerly known as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the celebration was renamed to be more inclusive of Pacific Islander identities and experiences within the larger Pan Asian community.
