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