Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions.
The University was founded in 1891 by Leland and Jane Stanford to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." More than a century later, Stanford remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing our students for leadership in today's complex world
Stanford students stand out for their academic excellence. They come from throughout the United States and the world, representing demographic, economic and cultural diversity.
Students are admitted on a need-blind basis, and the university ensures that no admitted student is unable to attend. Once here, students discover that exploration, challenge and curiosity are limited only by their desires.
Stanford is unusual among great universities in having seven schools on one campus: Humanities and Sciences, Law, Medicine, Business, Earth Sciences, Engineering and Education.
This breadth provides students with unparalleled freedom to cross departmental boundaries and discover intellectual and personal passions. Creative thinking, problem-solving and research are central to the academic programs at Stanford, and learning takes place in an environment of intimate collaboration. Around three-quarters of Stanford's classes have fewer than 20 students.
From Nobel Prize winners to undergraduates, all members of the Stanford community are engaged in creating new knowledge, whether in the sciences, business, the arts or wherever their interests lie.
Stanford is particularly noted for its openness to interdisciplinary research, not only within its schools and departments, but also in its laboratories, institutes, libraries and research centers.
Life On Campus
Stanford is a thriving residential campus and community. It sits on 8,000 acres of foothills and plains – once a horse farm belonging to Jane and Leland Stanford and still fondly known as "the Farm."
Living and learning are intimately interwined at Stanford. Extra-curricular programs, organizations, performances, forums and athletics beckon students, faculty and staff, as well as neighbors from the communities around us.
