AAPAAN wants your input!
We launched the AAPI Advancement Award in the spring of 2022 to honor current UVA faculty members who have made significant contributions towards greater understanding and appreciation of Asian culture or Asian-American relations. We were thrilled by the strong support of the AAPI alumni community for the award since its inauguration, and we want to make the 2024 award our most inclusive yet – so once again we are asking you to nominate, and then help select, the best candidate for this special honor. The winning faculty member will receive $5,000 to donate to their UVA department of choice!
Please use this online survey to nominate your candidate by February 9. Once the survey results have been tallied, we will send a follow up link where you can vote!
You can learn more about the 2022 and 2023 AAPI Advancement Award recipients on our website.
On April 11, 2024, we will host our AAPAAN Celebration at the Rotunda which will include the 2024 AAPI Advancement Award ceremony and a short series of faculty TED talks. We are super excited about this year’s celebration, and we really can’t do it without your support. Please help us make this event a success, both with your nomination and with your vote!
