For the Record – Season 3 Episode 13- Connect, Educate, and Advocate with the Asian American and Pacific Islander Caucus

Episode Notes


With the recent significant rise in racist rhetoric and violence against Asian Americans, members of our community are experiencing fear, anger, and anxiety. In this episode of For the Record, we talk to two members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Caucus to hear their sentiments about the current spate of violence and to talk about ways that we as higher education professionals can support our affected students, faculty, and staff.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Asian American community includes 40 different races/ethnicities. It is not monolithic and is quite diverse.
  • The AAPI Caucus is open to anyone who wants to participate and is an affinity group to provide community, resources, and support to Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders.
  • The United States has a long history of persecuting Asian Americans and while we recognize that we can’t flip a switch and create a just society overnight, we maintain hope in our communities and in our service to one another that changing lives through higher education can change the world.
