Stanford University's graduate students come from states across the country and from approximately 87 foreign countries. We recognize that the diversity of our student body enhances the educational experience of all students. Faculty, students, deans and administrators are committed to supporting the diversity of our graduate population and to maintain the diversity in our academic programs, curricula and teaching methods.
There are approximately 640 organized student groups covering a range of interests: academic, athletic, ethnic, cultural, and social. Student activities are also coordinated through the four ethnic theme houses and eight community centers on campus.
