The A/P/A Institute brings together accomplished scholars, community builders, and artists from New York City and beyond in interactive forums, reflection, and new research.
The Asian/Pacific/American (A/P/A) Institute connects New York’s Asian/Pacific American (A/PA) communities with students and scholars, promoting exchanges of knowledges to encourage change. Founded in 1996 in response to student interest, the A/P/A Institute nurtures the production of academic, literary, and artistic work about the largely marginalized experience of A/PAs. The building of collections and archives is a crucial component of this mission. Archives preserve physical documentation of the past. Scholars, artists, activists, and community members need access to the materials from which their present has been created. A/P/A Institute is facilitating the process of finding an accessible, permanent home for New York Metro region and East Coast A/PA materials. Our vision is to provide collections that allow for engagement with and dialogue about the experiences of A/PAs.
