The National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education (CARE) aims to increase awareness about the needs and challenges facing Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students in U.S. higher education. They conduct applied research on the demography of AAPI students, their educational trajectory, and their barriers to college access and success. CARE is a collaboration between a national commission, research advisory group, and research team. The project is housed in the Institute for Immigration, Globalization, and Education at the University of California, Los Angeles.
