A Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions research brief discusses insights from four program directors at Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AANAPISI) to support other program directors and institutions along the various stages of the Higher Education Opportunity Act’s Title III AANAPISI grant timeline.
The authors note that no two AANAPISIs are completely alike, so they recommend that grant newcomers temper their expectations, think flexibly, and maintain a clear vision for how their efforts fit into the broader institutional context. They also suggest making use of cross-campus allies and conducting regular assessments to ensure the efforts supported by the grant align with the institution’s efforts and strategic objectives.
