About Us

The Washington DC Stanford Association is a volunteer-run organization serving the Stanford community in the greater Washington, DC area.

WDCSA was founded in 1946 and is the regional alumni chapter for the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia metropolitan area. WDCSA membership is independent of membership in the Stanford Alumni Association; we currently have close to 500 members.
