UCSD becomes designated AAPI Serving-Institution

The University of California San Diego is officially a designated Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving-Institution. The school announced the designation in an article on the university website Tuesday.

According to the article, the designation will allow the university to apply for grants to help support the unique needs of AANAPI students. AAPI students currently make up about 40% of the undergraduate population.

“UC San Diego and our state serve some of the largest populations of Asian American and Pacific Islander students, so a commitment to promoting equitable access, providing excellent student support programs and ensuring a sense of belonging across all of our diverse student communities is fundamental to our mission,” said Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla, in a UC SD article. “We are honored to receive this designation and will continue our work to ensure all of our students can thrive.”

Schools and universities throughout the country are looking for different ways to support their AAPI students. Williams College and the University of Minnesota St. Paul are looking to add an Asian American studies major. A total of 19 states now teach Asian American studies in public schools.
