Diversity at Stanford

Stanford's student body is arguably among the most diverse in the United States. 

Among the many measures of diversity, more than half of our undergraduates are students of color and approximately 17 percent of our students are among the first in their families to attend college. 

Take the time to learn more about why diversity at Stanford means more than geographic, racial, or ethnic differences.

Discover Stanford, a place like no other you have experienced before.  As the largest contiguous college campus in America, Stanford is positioned in the heart of Silicon Valley just south of San Francisco and has served as an incubator for industry giants like Google, Yahoo, Netflix, the Gap and Charles Schwab. 

Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (of Central Park fame), the Northern California campus is an inspirational setting which is home to a virtually unrivaled network of Nobel, Pulitzer and MacArthur-winning faculty and an especially talented student body from all 50 states and from around the world.
