About APA Month

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month is about paying tribute to the generations of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America's history and are instrumental in its future success.

Syracuse University's Office of Multicultural Affairs and co-curricular funding brings you APA Month this April 2011. Student organizations on campus host events to inform the Syracuse community about Asian-Pacific American history, culture, identity and issues. It's an opportunity for students to get involved on campus, and to really learn about a different, or about their own, culture. This year's theme "Speak Out" is about making the invisible visible, encouraging students to advocate for social issues affecting their own communities and recognizing those who do so.
