Asian/Pacific American Caucus

Asian/Pacific American Caucus logo


The Asian/Pacific American Caucus comprises scholars who research and study the Asian/Pacific American culture. Members of this caucus work with the association to ensure that the interests of Asian/Pacific American members are taken into account for any policies or procedures. They also work to shed light on research pertaining to Asian/Pacific American cultures, and integrate that research with other units and divisions. They sponsor meetings and sessions at the annual convention and work with other NCA caucuses to create opportunities for scholars and strengthen the association as a whole
