Here's where you can learn about our vibrant student communities and ways Student Affairs supports them. We also offer individualized support for students on their personal journeys through college, graduate and professional school.

Cardinal Recovery

As Stanford's collegiate recovery program, we provide peer-led support for substance use and behavioral addictions.

Centers for Equity Community and Leadership

Eight Centers. One Goal. Distinct Approach. Our mission is grounded in values of justice, equity, and belonging at Stanford and beyond.

Disability Community Space

Disability is a core identity for the lives of many; it is vital that students with disabilities at Stanford have a space where they can comfortably express themselves and establish a community.

First Generation and/or Low-Income Student Success Center

The FLI Student Success Center operates on the pillars of advocacy, mentorship, community & belonging and connections to resources to provide holistic support for first generation, low-income, transfers, current/former foster youth and FLI graduate students at Stanford. 

Inclusion, Belonging and Intergroup Communication

IBIC works to build communication and understanding across difference.

We envision a process that will create an environment where students who report harm feel heard and supported.

The Well House

We want to create a substance-free undergraduate residential community and experience based on the theme of wellness. This provides an environment for students to learn and practice holistic approaches to physical, mental, and emotional health.
