Laanan, Frankie Santos; Starobin, Soko S.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n127 p49-59 2004
Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) represent a diverse group of different ethnicities and cultures. This study examines how national data on race and ethnicity are reported and describes the characteristics of AAPIs in light of the "model minority" myth. In addition, this study examines a definition of Asian American and Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AAPISIs) contained in legislation currently under consideration by the United States Congress.
