Founded in June 1963 at the University of the Philippines, Diliman by students who wished to form a community of individuals who take great pride in Chinese culture, UPCSA has since evolved into an organization that is not only cultural but socio-civic and academic in nature as well. It has since given a home to numerous students of different backgrounds, giving them avenues to grow and to form lasting bonds.

At present, the organization boasts of upwards of a hundred active members as well as several hundred alumni. Looking forward, UPCSA aims to continue its objective of furthering Chinese-Filipino understanding through promoting and enriching its culture.
