AANAPISI Parts A & F Grants

Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI)


Our Mission

AANAPISI's mission is to strengthen the College's ability to promote Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) student success.


The goal of the AANAPISI programs is to improve the transition, progression, graduation, and transfer rates of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students at Mission College. Fully funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Title III program, AANAPISI implements a comprehensive set of best practice strategies to overcome the documented obstacles of AAPI students on campus. The programs work alongside the major units of the college including Student Support Services, Instruction, and the Office of Research to pilot such programs, activities, curriculum, and other resources to promote student success. AANAPISI's aim is to strengthen the pipeline at Mission College to assist AAPI students from matriculation through degree attainment and transfer to four-year colleges/universities with a particular emphasis on transfer into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors.
