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 is SAC

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 does SAC do

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.
