Committed to the service, empowerment, and mobilization of immigrant, refugee, and under served Asian/Pacific Islanders by promoting higher education to empower ourselves and challenge the economic and social inequalities facing our communities.
Asian Pacific American Student Development (APASD) serves the diverse and changing needs of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities at the University of California, Berkeley. APASD provides accessible and relevant programming and resources, promotes cross-cultural community building, and advocates civil rights and social justice through education and empowerment.
APAPLA aims to provide guidance for Asian/Pacific Islander undergraduate students who are considering law school. We collaborate with the Asian American Law Journal (AALJ) at BerkeleyLaw to create a mentorship program for such students to explore the legal field and current API issues. We hope to continue cultivating a tight-knit community of pre-law API undergraduates, addressing inequities by hosting workshops and panels open to the community, as well as fundraise for local community organizations.
