APIA*SS helps guide students in their navigating through the university.
A) Supports student development and helps to identify personal (intellectual, moral, ethical, emotional, spiritual, and physical), academic, career, interpersonal, cultural, issues that may be hindering growth or affecting academic progress.
B) Developing skill competence and making effective choices regarding personal arenas, e.g., health and wellness, time management, cognitive reframing resilience.
C) Helping students deal with negative climate regarding their minority status and multiple identities. We advocate on behalf of studying the intersecting identity, teach students how to advocate, and/ or refer students to other appropiate departments and faculty/ staff.
