Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May is National Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. It's our priority to ensure those of Asian American and Pacific Islander descent — and all our diverse communities at SPIA — feel welcome, supported, and celebrated.

At SPIA, We Care

Our Community

We are committed to ensuring that all members of our diverse community feel respected, supported, and valued both inside and outside the classroom. We seek to strengthen the capacity of our students to promote equity and foster inclusion while here and in the broader world.

At SPIA, We Lead

Our experts are tackling today's most-pressing challenges. Below are some of our research priorities.

In Service to the Nation and Humanity

Our unofficial motto captures the essence of the School and is embodied not only in our curriculum — designed to prepare students to pursue careers in public service — but also in the activities our students pursue outside of the classroom.
