Filipino American Alumni Chapter

At the heart of the Filipino American Alumni Chapter are passionate individuals dedicated to fostering community and celebrating our shared cultural heritage and experiences. The legacy left by our alumni has paved the way for UCI to become a first-choice campus for Filipino American families. Through a variety of events and initiatives, we aim to foster and grow our alumni network in order to support the Filipino American community so that they can continue to thrive and succeed on campus and beyond.

Our mission is based on our shared values and cultural richness, transcending differences, and fostering a sense of belonging. We strive to make a positive impact, not only within our alma mater but also in the broader community.

Key Objectives:

Building a Strong Foundation: We're focused on expanding the FAAC Board with new leaders, increasing membership, and enhancing our online presence to better engage with our alumni community.

Supporting the 50th Kababayan Reunion: Join us in commemorating this special milestone on October 12, 2024.

Get Involved and Make a Difference:

• Volunteer and become an integral part of our thriving community.

• Stay connected on Facebook to keep up with our latest events and initiatives.


Together, we can leave a lasting legacy at UC Irvine and beyond. Thank you for being an essential part of our journey!
