Get involved, your way: 

  • Participate in a day of service through Beyond the Farm in your community or on campus.
  • Create a how-to video illustrating a simple engineering principle for grade levels K-5, 6-8, 9-12 to share with alumni
  • Plan, host, or volunteer at an event in your city and invite incoming grad students or fellow alumni 
  • Host a “Dinner Off the Farm”
  • Become a reunion volunteer for your Stanford Engineering class

Beyond the Farm is a fun way to contribute a day of your time with other Stanford Engineering alumni.
