Stanford’s Commitment to Racial Justice

During this time of heightened awareness of violence and discrimination against marginalized people, particularly Black Americans, it is even more important that we support all members of the Stanford community and equip ourselves with information and skills to create change. The Stanford Alumni Association’s mission is to reach, serve and engage all Stanford alumni, and we are committed to keeping you informed on the university’s response and scholarship pertaining to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access. We hope that you will be inspired to participate in an activity, lecture, or program to help us to take action to strengthen our Stanford community.

“Beyond our own campus, as an institution of higher learning we have an additional responsibility to ensure that our research and educational endeavors are sufficiently focused on helping society more broadly to evolve beyond the scourge of racism that has been present in our country for far too long.”

—Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne
