About AAPAAN

Welcome to AAPAAN

The Asian and Asian Pacific American Alumni Network of the University of Virginia

AAPAANAs the only pan-University organization dedicated to the Asian & Asian Pacific Islander community, AAPAAN is here to serve you and the 11,000 APA alumni of the University. We’re already the largest non-white U.Va. alumni group. With these numbers come influence, a voice, and the responsibility of using that voice wisely — to benefit not only APA alumni, but also the broader University community.

Our efforts to build a strong alumni network will benefit not only students on Grounds and alumni everywhere, but also the future of APA’s at the University. We hope that you will join our listserv, come to our Regional Chapter events, and support our mission.
