CSN Celebrates AAPI Heritage Month

Dear CSN Family,

Please join me during the month of April for Celebrate Diversity Month and Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage month. At CSN, we have opted to honor our Asian American Pacific Islander community during April to ensure there is plenty of time to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage before the spring semester concludes in May.

Students of Asian descent comprise approximately 10 percent of our student body at CSN and contribute greatly to the cultural diversity of our institution and community. I would like to re-iterate our condemnation of the recent alarming rise in hate crimes against the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Hate has no home at CSN and I encourage our CSN community to remain vigilant in the pursuit of social justice for all.

I encourage you to take time this month to reflect on recent events and honor the vital contributions of Asian American and Pacific Islanders to our cultural fabric. Join us as we host events celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage and explore the rich cultural traditions and histories AAPI people.

For more on that topic, and a full list of diversity related events, please visit csn.edu/DiversityEvents. Visit the CSN Events Calendar for a listing of all events.

God Bless and Stay Safe
