AAPITA is a coalition of California Asian American Pacific Islander Community College Trustees and Administrators that serve to enhance educational opportunities for AAPI community college students and professional development opportunities for AAPI administrators.


Formally launched in 2014, AAPITA strives to promote and advocate to ensure Asian American Pacific Islander students opportunity for access, retention, degrees, certificates, and promoting student success. We are dedicated to advocating for disaggregated student and employee data.

On April 29, 2022 with the update of our By-Laws, our name was formally changed to "Asian American Pacific Islander Trustees and Administrators" (AAPITA).
