The University of Pennsylvania Asian Alumni Network (UPAAN) is a volunteer-run alumni organization that provides a vehicle for University of Pennsylvania alumni to promote the civic participation, leadership and service of Asian Americans and Asians at Penn and in the broader society.
Our mission is to develop and nurture a global network to advance the personal and professional interests of Asian and Asian American alumni of the University. This year our initiatives include:
- Network Development
There is an incredible amount of talent and experience in the Penn alumni community; unfortunately, much of it is unconnected and its potential unused. UPAAN is striving towards strengthening our network by creating more meaningful and valuable connections between alumni through our programming and news initiatives.
- Campus Collaboration
We are also developing its relationship with the Pan-Asian American Community House and student groups on campus to better find opportunities for alumni to collaborate, interact, and stay up-to-date with the student body.
- Chapter & Member Support
UPAAN National is looking to reevaluate ways to provide more effective support for our chapters and benefits for our members. We are here to serve the alumni community’s best interests, and would love to hear feedback from you on what we can do to make your experience as Penn alumni better.
