Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Embracing diversity, advancing equity and cultivating inclusion at Stanford Engineering is an active, ongoing practice. And it touches every level of our dynamic community — faculty, students, postdoctoral scholars and staff. While Stanford Engineering is committed to reflecting the vibrant world around us, our work is far from finished.
We're prioritizing bringing together the most talented people from all backgrounds. That means nurturing an environment that welcomes and validates diverse perspectives and beliefs. Only when our engineers understand — and mirror — the needs of all people can we achieve our school’s larger mission: to create a better world.
Meet a few of Stanford Engineering's students, faculty and staff. Their stories are our collective narrative.

Stanford Summer Engineering Academy (SSEA)
Many of our students say SSEA, a program that introduces first-year students to campus, is like family. Watch this video to hear why.
Stanford Exposure to Research and Graduate Education (SERGE)
Get to know our professors
Stanford Engineering faculty play a powerful role in advocating for students, making them feel heard and building a community based on the inclusion of all voices. Meet these inspiring minds.
"Now that I have a lab of my own at Stanford, one of my goals is to give new students hands-on experience and confidence in doing research, so they can see the possibilities available to them. I’m especially interested in giving undergraduates that opportunity while training more senior students and postdocs, so they can participate in discovering something new. As a young student, something like that can change your life."
