Welcome to the Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Student Center
There are about 57 cultures under the umbrella term "Asian American and Pacific Islander" with over 300 different languages spoken. Though each culture has its unique characteristics, we are united in the common struggle of adapting to Pullman away from the comforts that our cultures may have provided. Things such as family, food, climate, and community advocacy/support are vital to feeling comfortable in a college climate.
The AAPI Student Center recognizes the unique breadth of experiences within the 57 cultures, striving to accommodate students to feel at home at WSU. It is a place to relax, meet other students, and find useful information to survive in this stressful college environment.
What We Do
We provide academic advising, tutoring, student mentoring, personal counseling advocacy, leadership training, a computer lab, and numerous programs throughout the year. We encourage all students at Washington State University to take part of campus activities and to take advantage of these great opportunities.
The Center helps to develop strong leadership skills while providing involvement opportunities so that students enrich their campus experience. Community building is key to all that we do. The AAPISC strives to accommodate students to feel at home at Washington State University. The AAPI Student Center is a place to relax, meet other students, and find useful information to thrive in the college environment. Together with our student organizations and other partners, there are opportunities for cultural learning and experiences in and outside of the Center. We support multiple events and programming that educate and invite participants to learn about history, issues, and other related cultural knowledge.
