Celebrate Asian, Pacific-Islander, Desi-American (APIDA) Heritage Month!

Scoop
Join Georgia State’s Multicultural Center and the greater university community in observing Asian Pacific Islander & Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month with events throughout April. Although this commemoration is officially observed in May, the university holds events and observances so that all may participate before classes end for the spring semester. We use the term APIDA, which stands for Asian Pacific Islander Desi American, as a pan-ethnic classification that intentionally includes South Asians (Desi) as part of our community. There is a great diversity of identities and ethnicities encompassed under the APIDA umbrella, including East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander. You can check out programs happening at the university here! Have programs you’d still like to submit? Submit them here!
