API Leadership Retreats

"As a first-generation college student, my parents were apprehensive about me leaving to attend school so far away. From my first moments on the Stanford campus, the A³C played a key role in integrating me into the university."

A³C hosts quarterly leadership retreats for the elected student officers of over thirty Asian American student organizations that utilize the space and resources at the Asian American Activities Center. The objectives of the retreats are

  • to educate students about the history of Asian Americans at Stanford and about present day national issues.
  • to provide the space for student leaders to interact, fostering collaborations.
  • to provide leadership training, such as workshops on effective communication and conflict resolution.

The API Leaders Retreat brings together representatives from all API student groups on campus for collaboration opportunities and leadership training. This crucial event consists of a series of interactive activities, hands-on discussions and bonding exercises that allow for more intra-community dialogue and interaction.

Announcements for our next API Leaders Retreat will be publicized through our API Leaders listserv.
