Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM)
The Office of Student Life Multicultural Center annually sponsors this major Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) identity programmatic undertaking in order to bring together students, staff, faculty and Central Ohio community across a wide diversity of APIDA cultures and traditions
The Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) is an initiative to begin conversation and celebration of the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) cultures, histories and identities. Here at The Ohio State University, we observe APAHM in mid-January and mid-February. We want to highlight and share the personal narratives of students, staff, faculty and community members with this year’s APAHM theme, Lo¯kahi, meaning harmony and unity, a value from Hawaii. Lokahi teaches us to pursue harmony in our physical space where people value both cohesive similarities and appreciate characteristic differences. It also teaches us to work in collaboration and cooperation with others to contribute feeling valued and unified. Focusing on Lo¯kahi, we ask you to reflect on your life -- What does Lo¯kahi look like to you? How can Lo¯kahi be a value in your work? How will you live a life of harmony and unity with other individuals?
APAHM is co-sponsored by the Asian American Association, Asian American Studies, API Cohort, Bonifacio, Chinese American Student Association, Latino Student Association, Ohio Progressive Asian Women Leadership, Office of the Senior Vice President for Student Life, Omega Tau Zeta, Pan Asian Mental Wellness Association, Pilipino Student Association, Student Activities Fee, Signature Events, Student Life Counseling and Consultation, Student Life Multicultural Center, The Khmer Student Association and The Vietnamese Student Association.
Please check our calendar for APAHM events.
