Asian American and Pacific Islander Policy Research Consortium | AAPIPRC
The AAPIPRC is a consortium of four university-based research centers that focus on critical policy issues facing Asian American and Pacific Islanders: University of California Los Angeles’ Asian American Studies Center, University of Massachusetts Boston’s Institute for Asian American Studies, City University of New York’s Asian American/Asian Research Institute, and University of California’s Asian American and Pacific Islanders Policy Multi-campus Research Program. These four share a common vision of supporting policy and applied research, working collaboratively with community organizations and policy makers, and training a new generation of engaged scholars.

The Consortium is committed to expanding its membership, especially to include an organization that specializes in policy research on Pacific Islanders.
