Asian American & Pacific Islander Student Involvement


The AAPI Student Involvement Area focuses on student engagement on the University of Maryland campus, especially in fostering a deeper understanding of the diverse experiences and intersecting identities of Asian American and Pacific Islander students. Through social and cultural events, leadership opportunities, educational workshops, and student organization and personal advising, we offer a variety of services and programs for students to develop their personal, ethnic, and racial identities. We aim to empower students to engage in advocacy and create social change for AAPI communities and beyond. 

News and Announcements

(Dis)abilities Language Workshop

When: Wednesday, November 1, 2017 (6:00 - 7:15pm)

Where: MICA/LCSL Conference Room

It’s been hundreds of years and we still don’t know how to talk about disability-- even the simplest conversations can be a maze of correctness and offense. Why is that? Come to the (Dis)abilities Language Workshop to discuss and learn about how disability manifests in the written, visual, and spoken rhetoric of our society. Let’s ask questions regarding the stories we tell about our bodies, minds, and experiences. Through this event, we can better understand how (dis)ability is portrayed, stereotyped, and celebrated. Join us for knowledge and snacks!
