Give a Gift to the Stanford Asian American Activities Center

The Asian American Activities Center, or A³C, is a department under the Vice Provost for Student Affairs and serves as Stanford's primary resource for Asian American student affairs and community development. The A³C contributes to the academic mission of the university through its partnerships and collaborative work with faculty, departments and academic programs.

Special Feature: When Half Is Whole

Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu, Ed.D.
Stanford University, Consulting Professor, School of Medicine & Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity

“Are you half Asian?”

I hesitated for a moment before answering, “Yes,” and immediately regretted my evasive, cowardly response. I have never felt “half” anything. I know that I am no more “half Asian” than the “half moon” is half of a moon. Like the moon I am not half, I am whole.
SAPAAC is an official club of the Stanford Alumni Assocation
