South Seattle Community College (South) is one of the first institutions to be designated as an Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI).
This program provides programs and resources designed to improve student transition, retention, graduation, and transfer to four year institutions. AANAPISI funding provides resources for the development of new programs to support the student's success and experience at South, including:
- Workshops to educate the family and to improve the student's first year experience
- Linked developmental math or developmental English with a college success course with a peer navigator to provide a community for students and connects them with campus resources
- Two new degree programs:
- Associate of Arts degree with an Asian Pacific Islander (API) Studies emphasis
- Associate in Elementary Education
- Access to higher education resources through the Asian American Pacific Islander Higher Education Resource Center (AAPIHERC) website. This website will house the Making Achievement Possible (MAP) college success video series, Transition Portfolio and other resources.
These programs are available to all students through this U.S. Department of Education AANAPISI funding.
