COMMUNITY OUTREACH & ENGAGEMENT

 

 

APIA*SS build relationships and partnerships with statewide, out of state and international Asian and Pacific Islander communties, agencies, and non-governmental organizations, P-12 schools, and community colleges to address the educational, economic, social issues and needs of our communities.

Access: We organize and collaborate with campus community units and student organizations such as the APIA Council to develope access programs for communities and schools. We welcome elementary, middle, and high school students and their families from the state of Oregon, other states, and international countries in their communities and to our Corvallis campus at OSU.

This is an opportunity for learning about higher education, familiarizing them with the OSU campus, admissions, financial aid, academic departments/majors, housing resources, and support services.
