Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month

SUMMARY

Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month is nationally celebrated May 1-31, 2021. Purdue Marketing and Communications has partnered with the Asian American and Asian Resource and Cultural Center (AAARCC) to amplify their stories of the giant leaps made by Purdue’s outstanding AAPI faculty, staff, alumni, and students throughout the University’s history.

Below, you’ll find helpful information, stories, and social media content regarding #AAPIHeritageMonth.


STRATEGY

While AAPI Heritage Month is nationally recognized during May, the Purdue Asian American and Asian Resource Cultural Center (AAARCC) recognizes AAPI Heritage Month from April to May each year in hopes to raise more awareness and increase celebration/recognition of AAPI culture while there is more student body population on campus. Though the following content will be shared during April and May, these stories and resources can be used any time of the year.
