AAPIFSA (Asian American Pacific Islander Faculty Staff Association) was founded in 1993 by Dr. Ellen Junn.  Since that time, AAPIFSA members helped to build and shape the API community on campus.  It has supported API students both through scholarships and financial support for various API activities, including the annual API Graduation Recognition Ceremony.  AAPIFSA recognizes and takes pride in the growing numbers of Asian and Pacific islanders who work at Cal State Fullerton and strives to mentor new API faculty and staff and to maintain a supportive API community.

  • to provide support in the hiring, retention, and promotion of AAPI students, faculty, staff, and administrators
  • to network among the members of the organization
  • to empower individuals in the organization to become more actively involved
