Our Values

Our community of faculty, staff, students and alumni is committed to providing a safe, inclusive, supportive, and equitable environment which celebrates all life experiences, perspectives and backgrounds. Our purpose is to foster open communications, recruit and engage a broad talent pool, and ensure that all members of our community have the opportunity to thrive and contribute within their educational, research and professional endeavors. We are committed to embedding these values throughout the fabric of our department's educational mission, while also supporting the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability’s broader inclusion efforts.

Stanford Land Acknowledgment

We recognize that Stanford sits on the ancestral land of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Ohlone people. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to acknowledge, honor and make visible the university’s relationship to Native peoples.
