On an ongoing basis, the A³C collaborates with the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA) to identify class leaders and plan events that appeal to the increasingly diverse group of alumni. The center also works in partnership with SAA in planning Homecoming Reunion each October.

Alumni Hall of Fame
The Alumni Hall of Fame was established in 1995 to provide an opportunity for the Stanford community to recognize the outstanding achievements of Stanford’s diverse alumni leaders. Alumni selected for the Hall of Fame are those who have distinguished themselves through exceptional advancement and success in education, career, and/or outstanding contributions to the Stanford community and society as a whole. These outstanding alums are honored each year at a special gathering during Alumni Homecoming Reunion in October.
