Belonging Statement

We believe that access to a healthful and purposeful life is a right afforded to everyone. We are committed to a welcoming and inclusive environment that advances access for all members of the Stanford community. Through our cause of igniting a culture of belonging and well-being, we work to ensure that a diversity of cultures, races and ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, political and religious beliefs, physical abilities, learning styles, political views, and other personal facets flourish.

At Stanford, we believe that to advance education, it is essential to be exposed to views and cultures other than one’s own and to have one’s opinions and assumptions challenged. Such engagement expands our horizons, enables understanding across difference, prevents complacency and promotes intellectual breadth. 

Our diversity ensures our strength as an intellectual and active community. In today’s world, diversity represents the key to excellence and achievement.
