The Student Alumni Council (SAC)

Main content start

The SAC works to inspire Stanford pride in undergraduate students by fostering lifelong emotional and intellectual connections.

Read on to learn more about the undergraduate initiatives that the SAC supports. For more questions about the SAC, please email us.

Who the SAC is

The SAC is an organization supporting alumni and student connections. Made up of students from all class years, the SAC partners with the Stanford Alumni Association to strengthen the bond that current students have with the university, their class and their alumni family. We work together to provide engaging events and initiatives.

What the SAC does

The SAC provides professional, social and service opportunities to current undergraduate students, while also supporting SAA programs and events that build class community and connect students with alumni. From Admit Weekend Alumni Panel to Cheers to Junior Year, these opportunities are available to students throughout their undergrad years.

Applying to the SAC

Interested in developing leadership skills, connecting with alumni and meeting new people? Consider applying to be an SAC member. In addition to serving for the duration of their undergrad careers, active members attend regular council meetings and individual committee meetings. Recruitment for new members has begun and will continue on a rolling basis over through winter quarter. The application process involves a form and a subsequent interview if invited to follow up. Come meet members in person at the Winter Warm-Up on Friday, February 18, 2022 during 12-3 pm in White Plaza. Applications are due February 28 and interviews will be conducted the evening of March 1.
