DEI support for graduate students

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is also a resource for graduate students and researchers within the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability. We work to provide students and postdocs with the latest information on funding, conferences, and student groups to help them meet their academic and outreach goals. If you are a current student or postdoctoral researcher, we encourage you to explore the different academic and cultural offerings listed below.
