Ongoing Program
Asian Americans are often stereotyped as studious, successful, smart — a model minority who excel in education and accomplish the “American Dream.” Despite its positive overtones, this stereotype is damaging for Asian Americans and other students of color. The model minority myth pits students of color against each other and ignores the reality of systemic racism that Asian Americans continue to encounter.

 

In response, USC Pacific Asia Museum has partnered with the USC Asian Pacific American Student Assembly, to collect stories from Asian and Pacific American students that deal with this stereotype every day. Included online are individual stories, told anonymously, to help debunk, the model minority myth.
