Enriching California's Future: Asian Pacific Americans in the CSU. Report of the Asian Pacific American Education Advisory Committee.
California State Univ., Long Beach. Office of the Chancellor.
This report provides insights into the problems and needs of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) in the California State University (CSU) and presents 29 recommendations which address these issues. Following an introductory section, section II presents a brief overview of the history, demographics, and higher education participation of APAs. Section III discusses the major outreach and admissions issues facing APA students, including the unmet needs of immigrant students who have limited English proficiency and the underserving of certain APA subpopulations. Section IV addresses campus climate and retention issues. Section V discusses issues related to curriculum and instruction; among these are the need for Asian Pacific American studies, the need to diversify the curriculum, and the underrepresentation of APAs in the teaching profession. The unmet English-as-a-Second-Language needs of immigrant students are described in section VI; and section VII examines the misconception that APA faculty and staff are not underrepresented in the CSU and, therefore, no longer face employment discrimination. Finally, section VIII summarizes the recommendations of the reporting committee. Contains a 52-item bibliography. (GLR)
