Asian Pacific Islander Heratige Month 2021 web banner

Criminal justice major and professional boxer, Brandun Lee, knows how important it is to follow your dreams. During his youth, Lee's family promoted going to college while he worked toward becoming a professional athlete. After his acceptance into Cal State San Bernardino's criminal justice program, he knew he could define his future through a career in law enforcement and use the tools he is learning from CSUSB to positively impact the youth in his community.

CSUSB's Department of Criminal Justice is a nationally ranked program that offers a broad range of courses to provide students with a comprehensive and solid background for entering into criminal justice. The program offers coursework and activities designed to provide students with the requisite preparation to become well-qualified criminal justice professionals or to continue their professional education.

Cal State San Bernardino celebrates Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month in April and May with a number of virtual events honoring the accomplishments, contributions and culture of Asian and Pacific Islander communities under the theme “Not Your Model Minority, Creating Waves of Change.” Nationally, Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month is celebrated during the month of May, but since CSUSB has a short month in May with finals and commencement, the university is starting celebrations in April.
