Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Student Achievement Program

The Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Student Achievement Program is made possible through collaborative efforts between the California Coalition on Asian and Pacific Islander American Affairs (CAPIAA), the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (Chancellor’s Office), and our advocacy and community partner Asian Pacific Americans in Higher Education (APAHE). The Foundation for California Community Colleges was selected as the Central Office to establish the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Student Achievement Program. The program aims to provide culturally responsive services to enhance student educational experiences and promote higher education success for low-income, first-generation AANHPI students, and other underserved and underrepresented students.

San Diego Mesa College is honored to be one of the 50 colleges participating in the AANHPI Student Achievement Program for the 2023-2024 fiscal year.

 • Culturally responsive learning communities

• Advising and counseling services

• Mental health counseling and awareness services

• Career development, career readiness, and employment services
