Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month

The Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month is a month-long celebration and uplifting of Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) identities, experiences, histories and cultures. Nationally, APIDA Heritage Month is recognized in May. Becasue this is after the end of the academic year, the Center for Belonging and Social Change host our programming during April.


The Student Life Center for Belonging and Social Change creates and highlights programming that centers the APIDA experience, and aims to inspire confidence, pride and deepened interest in what it means to move through the world as an APIDA individual.

The APIDA Heritage Month theme for 2022 was “Discover Your Fire.” Together we explored issues that you are passionate about, ideas that evoke high emotion, and our shared investment in celebrating and uplifting APIDA identities, experiences, histories and cultures.
