Guiding Principles for Recovery

Our mission is to advance knowledge and accelerate solutions for humanity, and educate students for a life of purpose.

Our success depends on attracting and enabling the best faculty, researchers and students, and supporting them with the best staff.

In setting priorities, we will strive to:

  • Ensure continuity in our research and teaching;
  • Ensure continued access for students, including through robust financial aid;
  • Anchor decisions in respect and concern for our community, and an understanding of the broader societal context in which they are made; and
  • Position Stanford for a strong recovery in the near term and steward our resources wisely for the long term
