Their goal was to discuss how the Asian and Pacific Islander community can find each other and come together and build more of a presence at Temple.

Soon after the initial meeting, an Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) affinity group was formed and the group has used subsequent touchpoints to create a governance structure, mission statement and organizational goals, which will be finalized by the fall.

“The AAPI group is about building the Asian and Pacific Islander community, learning about each other through one-on-one relationships, and finding ways to support one another,” said Hasunuma.

Then, as more faculty and staff were made aware of challenges that people in the Asian and Pacific Islander community have been facing throughout the pandemic, the email list rapidly grew.

In addition, developing general education courses on topics of importance to the AAPI community, as part of a subcommittee led by Yom, will also be explored.
