Get Involved with AAPAAN

Getting involved with AAPAAN is easy, all you have to do is ask.  There are several ways to get involved.  If you would like to be a part of AAPAAN, please contact James Tsai at  jttsai@gmail.com

Join the Council

Serving on the AAPAAN Council is an honor and a privilege … and is extremely rewarding and a lot of fun. We are looking for a few good men and women to serve on the AAPAAN Council. Do you know an alumus who’d like to help us grow our network? Someone who’s looking for a way to support fellow alumni? A friend who’d like to give back to our University?

Join a Committee

Most of AAPAAN’s activities take place within our committees. You are welcome to join a committee, even if you are not on the AAPAAN Council! Take a look at our committees and their responsibilities, and please contact the committee chair to see how you can get involved.

Mentor an Alumnus/ae

The University of Virginia’s Asian and Asian Pacific American Alumni Network’s (AAPAAN) is launching a NEW alumni-to-alumni mentorship program. Are you an alum looking for a mentor? Or are you an alum that would like to contribute back to the alumni community? We are actively searching for Asian and Asian Pacific American (AAPA) alumni to serve as mentors or mentees. These mentorship relationships aim to encourage networking and provide career support and guidance for inexperienced alumni through the extensive and diverse experiences of their mentors. Mentors also have the opportunity to give back to the UVA and AAPA communities.

Mentor a Student

AAPAAN is excited to expand and improve its mentorship program, launched in Fall 2005. We need your help! We are actively searching for AAPA alumni to serve as mentors to rising second, third, and fourth-year AAPA students. These mentorship relationships aim to encourage networking and to provide academic and career support and guidance for undergraduates through the extensive and diverse experiences of their mentors. Mentors also have the opportunity to give back to the UVA and AAPA communities.
