About 35 percent more Asian-American and Pacific Islander undergraduate students are likely to be on campuses over the next decade. To meet this growing demand, new research and efforts are emerging to best serve them. A report out earlier this month underscored the need to understand the diversity of the population and collect data based on students’ countries of origin. In addition, a national public-awareness campaign, “We’re Changing the Face of America” was launched in March by the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund and the National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education.
