The mission of the University of Florida Association of Asian Alumni is to create and sustain connections among alumni, students, and University administrators and faculty who serve the Asian American community at UF. It provides resources and networks for inter-generational community building, learning, and support.
The Association of Asian Alumni (AAA) at the University of Florida was established in 2010 by student leaders of the Asian American Student Union. Soon after officially becoming part of the UF Alumni Association as an affiliate group, the first executive board was selected.
