The mission of the APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander Desi American) Staff and Faculty Affinity Group is to provide APIDA staff and faculty with opportunities to interact, strengthen professional connections, and build support networks through outreach with the local APIDA community.

We also seek to enable the discussion of concerns and needs unique to the APIDA staff and faculty experience. With the goal of fostering inclusivity and highlighting the range of APIDA experiences, the group works to increase the on-campus visibility of the APIDA community through the promotion and organization of social and cultural events.
