Some voices in the classroom are rarely heard, including those of Asian and Asian-American students who reportedly experience high amounts of discrimination in academic settings that often go unnoticed. One prevailing stereotype of Asian and Asian-American students is that they are “model minorities,” denying their diverse social and cultural identities. For this initiative, faculty will review and discuss published narratives of Asian-American college students and consider how they can seek to enhance belonging of Asian and Asian American students in their classrooms.  The outcomes of these sessions include increased awareness of the myth, practical strategies and space to discuss challenges.
