Supporting Asian and APIDA Students

Join a Brownbag for the Student Affairs and Advising Communities

Event Details

Monday, April 26, 2021
12-1:15 p.m.

Media attention has shown a spotlight on anti-Asian and anti-APIDA violence and crime from across the United States, including the killing of six women of Asian descent in a mass shooting on March 16. Although this violence is not new or uncommon to the Asian community, and according to only a small fraction of anti-Asian hate incidents are reported. 

Join a panel of Student Affairs professionals to discuss strategies of supporting Asian and APIDA students at UW-Madison. This panel will explore some specific needs and cultural considerations when working with Asian and APIDA students, share strategies when talking about anti-Asian and anti-APIDA violence, and share important resources.

Questions and topic suggestions can be submitted here:

Gabe Javier, Associate Vice Chancellor, Student Affairs 
Other panelists – coming soon.
