The Stanford Australia Association exists to enable all students, graduates, academics and faculty of Stanford University, either living or travelling in Australia, to continue their experience and remain connected to Stanford.
We currently serve over 600 members across Australia (these members are from a variety of backgrounds and range from PhDs and degree holders to those who have completed short courses or executive education programs).
The association is run by a committee of Australian Alumni, with the goal of providing members with an opportunity to develop valuable associations, in an enjoyable collegiate atmosphere, while fostering a forum for continuous learning and connection to Stanford University.
