What is SAPAAC?

Established in 1989, the Stanford Asian Pacific American Alumni Club (SAPAAC) is now one of Stanford University's largest alumni organizations. We organize networking and community-building opportunities for Asian & Pacific Islander alumni, fund a scholarship for current students, support the Asian American Activities Center (A3C) at Stanford, and advocate for our communities on campus. 

SAPAAC is an official, chartered club of the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA), whose mission is to reach, serve and engage Stanford alumni by nurturing strong intellectual and emotional connections between the university and its graduates.
