ASIAN PACIFIC ISLANDER DESI American AFFAIRS
Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Affairs (APIDA) aims to promote a more critical understanding of APIDA issues and identity while advocating for the needs of the community. By focusing on leadership development, providing educational dialogue focused on the complex heritage of Asian Pacific Islander Americans, and being a voice for the APIDA community at UF, APIDA Affairs will empower its community members to take a more active role in shaping their experiences at the University of Florida and beyond.
Black Affairs is a department within the University of Florida’s Multicultural and Diversity Affairs Division that offers students, faculty, and staff who are interested in establishing a sense of community two spaces (the Institute of Black Culture and the Black Enrichment Center) to do so while being exposed to an array of programs, resources, and services that UF has to offer.
Hispanic-Latinx Affairs advocates on behalf of Hispanic Latinx populations and offers support to the University of Florida and the Gainesville community through various programs, resources, and networking opportunities in order to help facilitate cultural awareness, social justice, and empowerment. “La Casita” was established in 1994 and is the first institute of its kind in the south eastern United States, focusing on the empowerment of the Hispanic Latinx community through Advocacy, Education, and Outreach.
