About Us

Who We Are

Kaibigang Pilipin@ (KP), translated to “Friendship of Filipin@s”, is a non-profit student organization at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Founded on April 6th, 1987, KP began as a social gathering for Pilipin@s and Pilipin@-Americans to feel comfortable on campus. Since then, we continue to educate the UCSD and San Diego communities about the many aspects of Pilipin@ culture, as well as to preserve and promote positive images of Pilipin@s. KP also exists to support Pilipin@ students, to strive for equality for all Pilipin@ people, for underrepresented communities, and to serve as a community space for students.

As a student organization, KP strives to fulfill an enriching and holistic college experience for its members by providing social, political, academic, cultural experiences, and empowerment (S.P.A.C.E.). It is the duty of KP to provide workshops, events, and general body meetings that promote the growth of its members in all aspects of S.P.A.C.E.
