This year, the annual commemoration of Asian Pacific Islander Month will be expanded from May, through June 2016.
The first 3 of proposed future panels that present API Heritage and culture are prominently displayed in the Lower Mall (LM) Lobby of the Main Library at CSUEB's Hayward Campus.
We invite you to drop by and enjoy the cultures of Samoa, Indonesia, and the Philippines as presented by members of the campus' API Heritage Groups.
The Asian Pacific Islander exhibit for 2016 was produced with contributions from 3 of the CSUEB Campus' API Heritage Groups: Samoan, Filipino, and Indonesian.
Under the direction of Corey Gin, the Director of the CSUEB LEEP Program (Leadership and Employment Enrichment Program), the API Heritage Community - in conjunction with the University Libraries - will produce a new group of 3 or more posters each spring to commemorate Asian and Pacific Islander cultures.
This inaugural year, there was not enough time to bring all the contributors' projects to fruition, and as a result, new posters for Fiji and Pakistan will be included in the next API exhibit.
The API producers for this year's panels - Arvin Garcia, Bernard Juan Putra, and Siolotoi Ti - scrambled under a tight deadline to create the materials you see here (left).
The CSUEB Library was responsible for the overall assembly, layout, and printing. It was a great team effort, and we look forward to the next API outing!
