Celebration & Recognition
The Month of May
Asian American and Pacific Islander Month
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month (AAPI) and the College of Fine Arts will sponsor two recognition events in conjunction with several sponsored by Carnegie Mellon University. This recognition, which takes place annually in May, celebrates the contributions that generations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have made to American history, society and culture in the United States. A rather broad term, Asian/Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.
