10 Years of Impact
The University of Florida is an institution of higher thinking that provides spaces and opportunities for students to exercise critical thinking in order to develop strategies to create positive change. Without the efforts of students in the early 1990’s, Asian Pacific Islander Desi Affairs would not be inexistent to create and offer resources for all Gators on campus. UF continues to be a preeminent institution as the only university in Florida to have a space dedicated to Asian Pacific Islander Desi students and a full-time staff supporting the same community.
