President Mo Qayoumi will deliver the closing remarks at The Asian American and Pacific Islander Higher Education Summit April 25 in the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, Los Angeles. Organized by the College Board and the California State University system, the AAPI Higher Education Summit will welcome leaders of national advocacy and community-based organizations, college admission and outreach officers, faculty and teachers, school counselors, policymakers and parent engagement coordinators. “We see this conference as an opportunity to advance our strategy for improving college access and completion for all Asian American and Pacific Islander students,” said Charles B. Reed, chancellor of the California State University system. “We also look forward to showcasing our Journey to Success program as a national model for effective partnerships and community engagement to raise college awareness and preparation among AAPI students and families.” SJSU is slated to host a Journey to Success event in fall 2012 for students in grades 6-12 and those attending community colleges. The event will feature workshops about college preparation and requirements in addition to information about paying for college.
