Asian and Pacific Islander Community

The Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community at the George Washington University (GW) is a diverse group of students, faculty and staff, who represent a variety of backgrounds and experiences unified under the goal of cultural awareness. Currently, Asian student enrollment is 10% at the undergraduate level and 9% at the graduate level at GW.

With 17 student organizations promoting the values and traditions of East Asian, Southeast Asian, South Asian and Pacific Island cultures, API programs include culture shows, distinguished guest lectures and other educational events.

Throughout the month of April, GW celebrates Asian Pacific Islander Heritage showcasing the rich history, culture and accomplishments of the API community. The Multicultural Student Services Center provides logistical support for API organizations to collaborate and promote cultural awareness.
