Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center, Washington, D.C.

Registration is now closed for Workshop 2.

To commemorate the first ten years of the federal designation of Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISI), the 2017 Summit Workshop will create space to reflect on past accomplishments, current challenges, and future successes. APIASF is committed to building nationwide capacity for AANAPISIs, and we are excited to announce that Workshop attendees will collaborate to produce a set of strategic recommendations to guide this success.

During the Summit Workshop, APIASF will host a growing network of researchers, community-based organizations, institutions of higher education and other public stakeholders dedicated to increasing access to and pathways through college for underrepresented Asian American and Pacific Islander students. This event builds on feedback received during the 2016 Minority Serving Institution Convening at Richland College and 2017 APAHE AANAPISI Pre-Conference in Oakland, California.
