AAPI Award Nominations Closing Soon
The AAPI Advancement Award was launched 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 have been thrilled by the continued support of the AAPI alumni community for this award and hope to make the 2024 award our most inclusive yet. To help us do this, we are asking you to nominate your candidate for this year’s award by Friday, February 9.
Once the survey results have been tallied, we will send a follow up link where you can vote! Thank you for helping us to honor and recognize the great work being done by our UVA Faculty.
