At their 10-year Stanford reunion, Chad Hagle ('98) and a few classmates penciled the vision that would become SPIRE: an alumni club for real estate professionals, which would promote networking and innovation within Stanford and the industry. Like-minded alums quickly joined in to share their time, treasure, and talent, transforming vision into reality.
SPIRE quickly became Stanford's largest alumni association, expanding its mission to welcome those with careers in placemaking and the larger built environment. We extended our reach with regional and online events, and added engaging and exciting programs, including the student mentorship and grant initiatives under the Stanford Student Impact Fund.
SPIRE was built on a sturdy foundation. More than a decade in, we're going strong. And we have big plans to do more of what we do best: create + deepen connections, promote innovation, and increase impact.
