CAPAS Goals are to:
- Create an atmosphere where students can explore AAPI history and current issues
- Build a space where AAPI students feel safe to explore their Asian American Pacific Islander identity
- Build an AAPI community where students have access to resources and utilize them
To reach our goals, CAPAS student staff will be able to:
- Create social, cultural, and educational programs that support the Asian American Pacific Islander community.
- 75% of CAPAS student staff will participate in at least two CAPAS student centered programs per semester.
- Identify and utilize the resources available in the Asian American Resource Library.
- Identify AAPI resources within the Claremont Colleges, such as the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies and Asian American Advisory Board
- Learn outreach skills to disseminate information to the greater AAPI community that encourages the use of the resources available in the Asian American Resource Library.
- Develop awareness of issues specific to the AAPI community within the greater Pitzer community.
- Identify leadership opportunities in the AAPI community on and off campus and share this information with fellow peers.
- Learn inclusive facilitation skills and be able to identify ways to create a safe and inclusive space/environment for the AAPI community, and implement identified strategies in the Pitzer community
- 75% of student staff will be satisfied with CAPAS programming
Through the use of the Center and by participation in CAPAS programs, students will:
- Develop a sense of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) identity.
- Become involved or become a leader within the AAPI community.
- Become aware of issues surrounding the AAPI community.
- Utilize CAPAS for collaboration and outreach to Pitzer and the greater Claremont College community.
