API Retention Initiative

The Strategic Asian Pacific Islander (API) Retention Initiative is dedicated to the academic, personal, and professional success of all UC Davis students who identify with the Asian Pacific Islander community. Through collaborative efforts with Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, and other on-campus departments, the API Retention Initiative, seeks to create a support network for API students at UC Davis.

  • Three major components of the API Retention Initiative
    • One-on-one student meetings: (1) address academic, personal, and professional goals, and (2) provide writing support for summer scholarship essay 
    • Programming and events: virtual workshops (i.e. API Community Care Events)
    • Leadership Development: API student organizational leadership development discussions
