Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Continuing our commitment

The Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability is adopting the DEI programs and practices of the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences, which is one of the units coming together to form the new school. That includes adopting the mission of promoting a unified community of inclusion, respect, and excellence through the development of a student body, staff, and faculty that reflects the diversity of our national communities and international partners.

Our milestones

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are more than buzz words, these are principles that orient our vision and practices. This page serves as a visual tool to inform current and future efforts regarding the DEI Plan, increase transparency, and define coming priorities particularly as we move into the new school.

Reaching beyond Stanford

We reach out to targeted institutions and conferences to support diversity in student, faculty and staff recruitment.


Welcome students

Our faculty mentors, programming, financial assistance and resources can help all students succeed.

Stanford faculty discuss some of the pathways students take to come to Stanford, how faculty help students while on campus, some of the resources available, and where students go after they leave.

Stanford land acknowledgement

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.
