There are many doors to open at Stanford – discovery, innovation, collaboration, and diversity of people and ideas.

This spectrum is embodied by graduate students, professionals, and researchers. The journey toward academic achievement is shared by students in different disciplines, from a spectrum of cultures, races, ethnicities, work and life experiences, skills, interests, and perspectives. We want to assist you on your path to becoming the researchers and teachers who will contribute to scholarship. The entrance door is open.  We invite you to join us.
