Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPIHM)

About Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Each May, the Office of Pluralism and Leadership (OPAL) works with a student planning committee to host Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPIHM), a month of events that focuses on Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) history, diversity, and experiences. Throughout this month, we hope to highlight stories from AAPI members who are less represented within the community, explore how one defines their own identities, and celebrate the unique beauty that comes from our experiences of culture and adversity.
