Asian Pacific Islander Alumni Council

UC San Diego has grown into a university with one of the largest Asian Pacific-Islander (API) student populations in the country. As one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the United States, it is imperative to organize our collective voice within our university community and engage with every level of the alumni organization.

The API Alumni Council hopes to support outstanding API students and recognize the achievements of exemplary API alumni. As our organization connects and collaborates within the API community, we invite all API Tritons to join us as we work together to build a better future.


The ongoing mission of the Council is to positively influence, unite, advocate, and promote the UC San Diego API community of alumni, students, staff and faculty. We function to foster and bind the community, in which the Council may provide the UC San Diego API Alumni network meaningful opportunities and resources for: professional and personal support, engagement, representation and mentorship.
