Heritage Month

Originating in 1978, the first ten days of May celebrated “Asian-Pacific Heritage Week.” Since 1992, the week-long celebration has officially become a month-long celebration. Due to our academic calendar, April marks the beginning of Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month at California State University Fullerton. This month celebrates the cultures, traditions, and rich history of Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans in the United States.

The Asian Pacific American Resource Center, in collaboration with various departments, off-campus partners, and student organizations, invites you, your students, and colleagues to participate in this year’s APIDA Heritage Month programs. Aligned with the theme: “Together We Grow,”  this year’s includes events that highlight lived-experiences of the diverse APIDA communities.

For more information and other inquiries, please contact the Asian Pacific American Resource Center at 657-278-3742 or via email at APARC@Fullerton.edu.
