Welcome Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Faculty and Staff

The Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Faculty and Staff Alliance is a support network for APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander Desi American) identifying MSU Denver faculty and staff.

APIDA Alliance is one of four identity based affinity groups at MSU Denver.

What is an Affinity Group?

Affinity Groups are voluntary associations of people who have common interests. Affinity Groups play a vital role in articulating, promoting and supporting the needs and goals of their various communities and organizations. Their primary focus is to develop and improve the campus climate by increasing the presence of diverse faculty and staff. The groups can assist the organization with the recruitment, retention, and promotion of top diverse talent. In addition, they can help increase morale, provide insights into diverse areas, build bridges to the community and empower members.
