The 7-College Asian American Advisory Board, known as “AdBoard,” aims to foster a strong Asian Pacific Islander Desi American community at The Claremont Colleges by creating opportunities for interaction and identity building among Asian American, Pacific Island and Desi American/South Asian students. These goals – identity building and the creation of 7C community ties – are at the heart of AdBoard’s mission. The Board offers programs and provides complementary support to the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American student groups and resources. These groups and resources include: Pomona College’s Asian American Mentor Program (AAMP) and Asian American Resource Center (AARC), Scripps College’s Asian American Sponsor Program (AASP), Asian American Student Union (AASU), and SCORE, Pitzer’s Asian Pacific American Coalition (APAC) and Center for Asian Pacific Americans (CAPAS), Claremont McKenna College’s Asian Pacific American Mentor Program (APAM), and Harvey Mudd College’s Asian Pacific Islander Sponsor Program (API-SPAM), Empowering Pacific Islander American Communities (EPIAC), and Office of Institutional Development (OID), and the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies (IDAAS).
AdBoard is committed to addressing the needs of and to providing resources for all members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
