Asian Pacific Islander Desi Affairs (APIDA) aims to promote a more critical understanding of APIDA issues and identity while advocating for the needs of Asian and Asian American community. By focusing on leadership development, providing educational dialogue focused on the complex cultural and intersectional identities, and being a voice for the community at UF, APIDA will empower its community members to take a more active role in shaping their experiences at the University of Florida and beyond.
