Stanford’s foundation has always been our people, which is why Our Vision includes initiatives focused on attracting and supporting curious and innovative faculty, students and staff who strive for a better world. We also recognize that achieving our goals requires diverse ideas and perspectives, and have embedded equality and inclusion across everything we do.
