Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

  • APAHM 2017 APAHM 2017

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM)

The Student Life Multicultural Center sponsors this major Asian Pacific American identity programmatic undertaking each year, bringing together student and community groups across a wide diversity of Asian cultures and traditions. 

The Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) is an initiative to begin conversation and celebration of the Asian Pacific American cultures, histories, and identities. Here at The Ohio State University, we observe APAHM in January and mid-February. We want to highlight and share the personal narratives of students, staff, and faculty with this year’s APAHM theme, AHIMSA, meaning compassion and nonviolence, a pillar within Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. Focusing on compassion, we ask you to reflect on your life – What does ahimsa look like to you? How can ahimsa inform the way you create and reconcile relationships? How will you live a life of compassion as you make decisions and pursue your passions?

APAHM is co-sponsored by the Asian American Association, Asian American Studies, Graduate Pan-Asian Caucus, College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, Higher Education and Student Affairs program, Asian American InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Dance Soul from China, Latin Student Association, Native American and Indigenous Peoples Cohort, Never Let Your Pen Dry, Odissi Dance, Pan Asian Mental Wellness Association, Pilipino Student Association, Starbucks, Student Activities Fee, Signature Events, Student Life Counseling and Consultation, and the Vietnamese Student Association.
