Asian American, Native American and Pacific Islander Serving Institution


What is AANAPISI? 

Asian American, Native American and Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) is a federally funded program via the Department of Education Title III Grant. Our AANAPISI Scholar program at North Seattle College provides student support services and culturally responsive programming to Asian and Pacific Islander (A&PI) students. We at AANAPISI are committed to combating 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.
