Alumni Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Main content start

Your voice is important. 

We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive community. As an alum, your voice is important in the conversation.

We believe

We believe that diversity of perspective and life experience, as well as attention to issues of equity, are integral to producing cutting-edge, high-impact research to benefit communities around the world.

Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability aims to integrate Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) throughout the fabric of its educational mission. By embedding DEI initiatives within all our programs and processes, from mentoring and teaching to planning fieldwork and making curriculum choices, we hope to dissolve the social and cultural barriers that continue to obstruct educational opportunity.

Get involved

Share your story with students

We invite you to share your personal story. Understanding diverse experiences helps to spur new knowledge, enrich relationships, and foster a sense of belonging for all community members.

Mentor across differences

Become a mentor through Stanford Alumni Mentoring (SAM) and participate in conversations with mentees about career goals and barriers that can illuminate both diverse perspectives and commonalities.

Join a Stanford Alumni Affinity Group

Join one of the dozens of Stanford alumni clubs formed based on personal and identity affinities. Don't see one that feels right? Talk with us about building community that is reflective of your positionality.

Share your own idea

Have an idea of your own? Let us know how you'd like to become more involved in diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts within the Stanford community.

Our efforts

Our efforts also focus on fostering an inclusive cultural climate that creates a greater sense of community for everyone, while giving visibility to individuals who may be underrepresented, whether they be first-generation to college, low-income, ethnic and racial minorities, women, LGBTQIA+, members of faith-based groups, international students, or any other individuals who contribute to the diversity of our community.
