EAST House

The Education and Society Theme (EAST) House seeks to establish the salience of education and the relationship between education and society on Stanford campus through outreach to undergraduates and residential-based programming. It provides a living-learning space for undergraduates interested in educational research, policy and activism, as well as teaching.

The EAST House envisions a living learning space that serves students as a hub of activity around student engagement in education. Traditional elements of the academic theme house include a year-long house seminar on rotating topics in education and education-themed events such as informal brown bags, outings to education-related community sites, and visits by guest speakers working in various capacities in formal and non-formal education contexts.

For detailed information, please visit the EAST House website.


Through the Haas Center for Public Service, Jumpstart East Palo Alto pairs Stanford students with preschool children in East Palo Alto childcare centers to deliver an innovative early learning program to the young children. Jumpstart provides a high-quality, comprehensive program that focuses on the development of the child, his or her family, and the university student serving with this national organization as an AmeriCorps member. Through these program areas—school success, family involvement, and future teachers—Jumpstart works to create an environment of lifelong learning for under-resourced children.
