Asian American, and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution


What is AANAPISI? 

Asian American, and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) is a 5-year federally funded program that seeks to increase student success outcomes and create a stronger sense of belonging by implementing culturally responsive-sustaining programing and providing holistic student support services, in order to, expand the college's capacity to serve Asian and Pacific Islander (A&PI) students and the larger North Seattle College Community. We at AANAPISI are committed to combatting dominant narratives and stereotypes surrounding our A&PI communities. We create spaces of empathy, of strength, and of belonging for our A&PI community members. The care for our students, faculty, and staff of Asian and Oceanian descent are regional, specific, and interconnected. We seek to uplift the diverse and unique lived experiences of our students and clear out room for all A&PI stories and futures towards a safe and thriving campus climate and greater community.
