Our Faculty

Teaching by Choice

Faculty across campus—including graduate and professional school faculty—share their interests and passions with undergraduates. They design their own freshman and sophomore introductory seminars lead sophomore college courses to chart a new direction in their research and teach courses at overseas campuses that provide comparative explorations of major issues.

At each step of the undergraduate career, students meet and work closely with faculty members who will become mentors, advisors and friends. They teach students as much about how to question and examine life as they do about the subject of their courses.

Community of Scholars

Stanford recognizes both the teacher and the student as scholars, a perspective that fosters mentoring relationships between faculty and students. This sense of collaboration creates an environment that rewards teamwork, promotes progress and challenges traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Faculty members serve as research mentors and Resident Fellows, freshman advisors and internship sponsors. They serve as Resident Fellows, or RFs, who live in or adjacent to student residences and act as leaders for their communities. They are accessible during office hours and at dorm dinner tables.
