Vision of the Summit
As the Summit continues to recognize the need for current Pacific Islander college students to have exposure to post-graduate programs and opportunities, this year the Summit will focus on encouraging BYU students to learn, connect, and be inspired to prepare for post-baccalaureate graduate work.
The Summit includes time to network and meet with BYU graduate programs interested in recruiting Pacific Islander students, an elegant dinner, table discussions with current Pacific Islander graduate students, and a keynote address.Read full article about last year’s summit here
