Dr. Kwon participates at AAPI Midwest Regional Action Summit
The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) recently held its Midwest Regional Action Summit on July 13, in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Melissa Kwon, Research Associate at CAREI, was invited to be a panelist on the Education Panel, speaking about AAPI Issues in Higher Education in the Midwest. Kwon discussed the importance of disaggregating AAPI data, as well as educational access, retention, and leadership development for AAPIs in higher education in the Twin Cities. The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, housed in the US Department of Education, will use what they learned at the Midwest Regional Action Summit to inform policy decisions affecting AAPI students.
