Feedback

"I would love PCCU to dive into the experiences of Asian-American students versus Asian (international) students. I think there are very interesting intersections and differences from which we could learn. There are aspects of the "Model Minority" myth and the "Asian threat" that hinder both groups' full access and sense of belonging within U.S. schools."
