31% of Hunter College’s population identifies as Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI). During this Lunchtime Seminar, staff of Hunter College AANAPISI Project (HCAP) will discuss issues AAPI college students face and strategies on how best to support them. Kalindi Doshi, HCAP Director, will provide an introduction to the backgrounds of Hunter’s AAPI students and describe possible obstacles our students face during their time here. Dr. Marcia Liu, clinical psychologist and HCAP’s Mental Health Educator, will explore ways for professors and staff to address mental health concerns and provide on/off campus resources.  Dr. Linh An, anthropologist and HCAP’s ELL Specialist, will discuss how to support multilingual students. In addition, all three presenters will address the impact of the recent changes to the DACA program that affect many AAPI students. Through discussion and readings, the HCAP staff hopes faculty and staff walk away with tangible strategies on supporting AAPI students.
