AAPI Intercultural Learning Center

NOVA’s AAPI Intercultural Learning Center is a place to find holistic support and opportunities for education about Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. We encourage student retention and success with a focus on AAPI experiences and resources. The AANAPISI Center’s services are framed to address the unique needs of AAPI students, but we welcome and serve all students, faculty, and staff at NOVA.
