Mission Statement

The Asian, Asian American Pacific Islander Faculty and Staff Caucus at LSU was founded in May 2021 in the wake of the increase in violence against our community during the pandemic. The organization provides solidarity and support to A/AAPI faculty, staff, and students to ensure that LSU upholds its responsibilities to us. We believe that the caucus must empower the A/AAPI community to speak out against anti-Asian violence, xenophobia, and racism, by helping to provide appropriate channels for redressal. Importantly, we also aim to foster awareness of A/AAPI issues through educational and cultural programming and social events. The caucus thus advocates for the inclusion of the A/AAPI community as stakeholders in every aspect of university life. 

Who We Are

We are LSU faculty and staff who stand in solidarity with the A/AAPI community. We are tenured and untenured faculty, deans, department chairs and coordinators, directors of academic programs, university administrators, high computational physicists, veterinarians, English teachers, literary critics, psychologists, geologists, professionals in residence, art historians, and so much more. We speak many languages; we are members of many faith communities; we have cross-generational roots in many nations; we are composed of many ethnicities. But we are united in our belief that we are stronger together

Events

Coffee with A/AAPI 

Wednesday, 1-3pm on May 4th at City Pork, Design Building of LSU.

Come join us for an end-of-the-semester coffee break (don’t we all need that?) ! Stop by and say hi anytime, and stay as long or as short as you like. For this first in-person gathering of our caucus, we would love to celebrate together the close of this difficult year that has too often separated us. Coffee and pastries will be donated by LSU Dining--the A/AAPI Caucus is very grateful for their warm support!
