"As a former Asian American PhD student at Stanford ('05-'09), I felt the Asian American Activities Center (A³C) played a crucial role in my academic success at Stanford."
Welcome Graduate Students!
Created in 2011, Grad Life is a series that aims to provide Asian/Asian American graduate students with resources to sustain a healthy and balanced life while at Stanford. Grad Life offers workshops led by trained professionals and peers that engage students with mental health and wellness topics, connect students to campus resources, and create space for community.
- Navigating Your First Year Grad Experience
- Communicating Across Cultures
- Academic Workspace and Work/Life Balance
- Q-mmunities: Finding Community Among Queer API Grad Students
- Asian/Asian American Women in Grad School
Each event includes an hour of workshop programming and half an hour afterward to socialize. Students are free to come and go as their schedules permit. When in person, food is also served. Due to COVID-19, 2021-2022 programming will be online until further notice.
