Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Celebration

Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Celebration

LaGuardia Community College has been celebrating the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Celebration in May every year. AAPI is an annual event of LaGuardia featuring various cultural, philosophical, and linguistic heritages from Asian countries. Along with the other cultural heritage celebrations, including African American Heritage week and Latino Heritage week, AAPI acknowledges and celebrates diversity and cultural richness of LaGuardia Community College.

The Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Celebration Committee is committed to promoting Asian and Asian American groups on campus. Our Mini-Conference and Final Celebration are intended to provide the college with a wonderful array of educational, cultural and engaging programs that will heighten the awareness and contributions of Asian and Asian American groups in New York City.
