The Filipino American Community at Stanford (FACS) is a civic, cultural, and educational campus entity aimed at bringing together staff at Stanford who are interested in centering F/Pilipino/a/x and F/Pilipino/a/x American culture and issues, building community, and supporting the diversity initiatives on campus. FACS provides an opportunity for members to gain experience in leading groups and to build skills in leadership and organization that staff might not otherwise have in their current job. FACS is also a community of staffers that share common interest in the Philippines and wish to build community here at Stanford.

FACS works closely with the Stanford Diversity and Access Office, the Pilipino American Student Union (PASU), Asian American Activities Center, Bechtel International Center, Office for Religious and Spiritual Life, and other staff affinity groups.

Race conscious college admission is important for our community as it supports the disaggregation of data on Asian American and helps uncover many education disparities for Filipinos in America.
