Diversity and inclusion are essential to Stanford's educational excellence. Research and teaching are enriched by a breadth of perspectives, and a Stanford education must help students prepare to succeed in a society that is increasingly diverse and a world that is increasingly interconnected.
As college and university communities across the country confront issues of race and justice on their campuses and in our broader society, this page offers background information on some of the activities Stanford has undertaken to advance diversity and inclusion in their many dimensions.
Some programs may not be widely known throughout the Stanford community. This page, while not comprehensive, brings information together in one place, in the hope it will help members of our community find resources and opportunities. University efforts in these arenas are ongoing in the hopes of making continued progress.
