mission statement
The Asian American/Pacific Islander Resource Center (AA/PIRC) first opened in April 1999 due to the tireless efforts of student activists and supportive staff/faculty. AA/PIRC's mission is to provide and enhance opportunities for developing leadership, building a stronger sense of community on campus and linking students to community serviceopportunities.

Ultimately, AA/PIRC offers education and dialogue on issues affecting Asian American/Pacific Islanders toward addressing students' multiple and diverse academic, social, cultural and other co-curricular needs.
