Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs

A/PIA Heritage Month

Asian/Pacific Islander American Heritage Month (or A/PIA Heritage Month) is a university-wide celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander American Heritage. While the month is recognized officially in May, the United Asian American Student Organizations and the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs celebrate it from mid-March to mid-April, with a diverse range of events, lectures, workshops, and activities that honor A/PIA history.

Throughout the month, events will be added to the calendar below that may not necessarily be represented on the graphic calendar! Check back often for updates. 

For questions about specific event information or in general about A/PIA Heritage Month, please contact the MESA office at (734) 763-9044 or by emailing We are more than happy to help!
