Andrew Hua & Zduy Chu
September 7, 2017
On behalf of the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program and NASPA Asian Pacific Islander Knowledge Community (APIKC), congratulations on your admittance to the program and welcome to the field of student affairs!
In our roles, we serve as the NUFP liaisons to the APIKC. The APIKC serves the Asian Pacific Islander and Desi (APIDA) Community at NASPA and is a place to connect, find mentors, and resources related to the APIDA community. Our roots in NASPA began in becoming involved in NUFP and APIKC. Currently, Andrew is a Residential Education Director at Washington State University and is a NUFP Alum. Zduy is the Director of Housing and Residence Life at Valdosta State University and is a MUFP Alum.
We have both had extremely positive experiences with the NUFP program and are incredibly excited to support you on your own professional journey. As the NUFP APIKC Liaisons we are here to serve as a resource to you and your mentor. As you continue with your NUFP journey, stay curious, ask questions, be proud and remember that not many undergraduate students have this experience. You will be provided with a plethora of resources, mentorship, guidance, and support. As a “mentee”, you have an active role in how far you wish to go with the program, take ownership of your learning, reflect and allow yourself to grow.
Please reach out to us at any time for support! We are thrilled to begin building a relationship with you as you begin to navigate everything this program has to offer! We hope that you will be able to take advantage of the many opportunities that both NUFP and your APIKC family (or as we like to call it…our Ohana) will provide to you.
Once again, congratulations and welcome to the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program! We look forward to connecting with you soon!
