Asian Pacific Islander Committee

Our mission is to celebrate, educate and raise awareness of the many diverse and intersecting Asian and Pacific Islander cultures, histories and lived experiences here and abroad, which are represented by members of our college community.


By sponsoring these activities, the members of the Asian Pacific Islander (API) Committee hope to build understanding, challenge stereotypes and foster a sense of belonging, harmony and inclusivity at Grossmont College and East County San Diego.
