Stanford is currently in Stage 2 of the restart process. Only essential workers, authorized researchers and laboratory support personnel and those with permission to be on campus to prepare the campus for restart should be on campus at this time. All work that can be done from home should continue to be done remotely.

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
