  • Asian and Pacific Islander Alumni Chapter

    Over the past 100 years, thousands of Asian and Pacific Islander students have studied in University of Nevada classrooms, cheered for the Wolf Pack at Mackay Stadium, and celebrated upon graduating from the University of Nevada, Reno.

    In May 2008, the idea to start an alumni chapter for Asian American and Pacific Islanders was proposed to a small group of graduates and soon-to-be graduates. With the desire to maintain relationships and continue networking with Asian and Pacific Islander graduates, the idea received resounding support. Shortly after, the API Alumni Chapter was born.

    Mission

    The API Alumni Chapter of the University of Nevada, Reno is an Alumni Chapter dedicated to the understanding of Asian and Pacific Islander awareness in our community. We are dedicated to building lasting relationships through shared experiences while furthering Asian American and Pacific Islander culture. We strive to dispel negative Asian and Pacific Islander stereotypes through education and outreach within the community.

    Our goal is to provide support in all areas of cultural awareness involving the University of Nevada, Reno and its constituents. The API Alumni Chapter incorporates the values of the University of Nevada, Reno while promoting well-being, advocacy, opportunities and growth through volunteering, communication and outreach in the Asian and Pacific Islander Community.
