Asian Pacific Islander Student Services

The Multicultural Center strives to provide social and cultural support to the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) student body through Asian Pacific Islander Student Services. There are over 50 different cultures within the API community, and a number of them are represented at the University of Nevada, Reno. Our goal is to create a home away from home and provide cultural connections and community at the University. Additionally, the program aims to increase community awareness of the different cultures within these populations through numerous outreach initiatives such as club organizations and public events.
