APIFSA (Asian Pacific Islander Faculty & Staff Association) started toward the end of 2020 for the purpose of engaging and informing faculty & staff on the various cultures represented in the Asian Pacific Islander community. As a staff affinity group, we are focused on building community and sharing cultural knowledge and insights with the entire Bruin family and beyond. We welcome faculty & staff of all backgrounds to learn, share, and grow with us.

All are welcome to join, if you identify with the API community, API allies, or if you are interested in learning about the API community.
