Asian Pacific American Student Success is an umbrella term used to house Asian Pacific Islander initiatives at Cal State East Bay. The university’s AANAPISI grant programs, Student Service Operation for Success (SSOS) and Transfer Asian Pacific American Student Success fall under Asian Pacific American Student Success.
The program’s services include academic support to increase successful outcomes, foster personal development, enhance social networking, and to create paths for students to reach graduation and realize their career goals. Additionally the project will collect AAPI disaggregated (individual) data to provide a greater understanding of this unique student population.
Program SSOS was funded by a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education Asian American and Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI). Project SSOS was established in 2011 in cooperation with the Academic Support programs at Cal State East Bay to provide support services for students of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage. The SSOS program proved to be very successful and beneficial to the campus community. The program will be closing after Spring 2017 and has achieved many accomplishments in its six years on campus.
Transfer Asian Pacific American Student Success is being funded by a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education Asian American and Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI). Both programs were established to promote educational support for students who are historically underserved in higher education. APASS was established in 2016 and will launch beginning with their Summer 2017 programming. The program focuses on transfer students and will operate through the end of the 2020-2021 academic school year.
