APIDA Student Success Committee

The Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC) created the APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander Desi American) Student Success Committee as part of the NSSC’s Identity Conscious Student Success Initiatives. The purpose of the APIDA Student Success Committee is to intentionally increase student success efforts and close the opportunity gaps that exist. Goals include but are not limited to increasing graduation rates, shorten time to degree, and close opportunity gaps.
