A³C Endowed Directorship

Main content start

Siblings Will Hsu ’98 and Angie Hsu’96, MA ‘96 endowed the A³C’s Director position in honor of their father, Scott J.J. Hsu, who emigrated from Taiwan along with the rest of the family, including Will and Angie, in hopes of creating a better life for his children – and recognizes the important role the center played during their undergraduate experience.

In making the gift in December 2020, Will said, A³C was our home away from home, a place to celebrate Asian American identity. The A³C was the place where we could learn about and embrace our community. With this gift, we want to thank our parents for their sacrifices, pay it forward to help other students and inspire current and future alumni to support this remarkable community for years to come.”

The Scott J.J. Hsu Directorship is the first endowed directorship created for the community centers. The endowment will allow the A³C to continue to build programs and resources to support student well-being, to affirm every student’s identity and cultural background, and to support their sense of belonging and community.  We look forward to building and expanding our mentoring, mental health and well-being, leadership development programs, and our racial and social justice initiatives.

We hope this inspiring gift generates increased understanding and appreciation for the work of Stanford’s community centers and the impact the centers have on student lives.”
