IMPACT AAPI is a program designed to support the academic achievement for Pacific Islander and Asian American students - especially Pacific Islander (Samoan, Tongan, Chamorro, Hawaiian) and Southeast Asian students (Pilipinx, Cambodian, Hmong, Laotian, Vietnamese). The name is an acronym for "Initiatives to Maximize Positive academic Achievement and Cultural Thriving focusing on Asian American and Pacific Islander students at De Anza College." IMPACT AAPI is funded by the Office of Equity.
Our goal is to close the gaps in academic achievement and transfer among Asian American
and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students at
De Anza by focusing on Asian Pacific Islander subgroups that are historically underrepresented in higher education. Our integrated curricular pathways are designed to provide educational experiences that support and challenge our students.
