Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Calendar 2011
Each year a University calendar of events is published to commemorate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Observed on campus every April, this celebration reflects on the experiences and acknowledges the contributions of persons of Asian descent. Now is an excellent time to start thinking about programming that you could contribute for this year’s upcoming Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. We invite you to be creative in identifying topics for programs or events that relate to your particular unit, organization or mission.
