Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Community Fall Welcome
The AAPI Community Fall Welcome event promotes the ethnic and cultural diversity of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community at UC Davis. It is open to the public and serves as a community celebration to the upcoming year for all of our students. Many different student groups, departments and units across campus participate in our Fall Welcome. We pride ourselves in inviting diverse groups to participate so that our first year and incoming transfer students have the opportunity to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available to them at UC Davis.
Since its inception in 1973, Asian Pacific Culture Week (APCW) has provided the UC Davis campus with cultural programs designed to both educate and celebrate.

Speakers from diverse corners of the Asian Pacific Islander community fill the week with presentations. In the past, musicians, comedians, actors, authors, artists, and civil rights activists have visited the campus to share their experiences.
