Hey everyone! This is Laura, AAA's current political chair. I know this post is coming a little late, but I just wanted to officially announce that Columbia has been named one of ten best colleges/universities for AAPI students by Asian Pacific Americans for Progress (APAP)!!!
On September 24th, APAP, in association with Angry Asian Man, recognized Columbia for "holding the institution accountable to its campus community and getting active in the surrounding community to make a difference." Columbia's student activism, including 2007's hunger strike, the campaign for worker's rights at Saigon Grill, and action regarding an arrest of a Korean student marked with racial slurs are highlighted. The post also mentions Columbia students' work with AALDEF and AAA's AAPI high school leadership conference, Crossroads.
A huge thanks to everyone who nominated us! I feel extremely lucky to be AAA's political chair at a university with such strong commitments to student activism and community service.
You can check out the article here and here.
Other colleges/universities recognized include Dartmouth College, UCLA, University of Southern California, Oberlin College, University of Massachusetts at Boston, UPENN, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Loyola Marymount University, and Pitzer College.
