Undergraduate Advising and Research introduces students to the full intellectual richness of undergraduate study at Stanford, supports students in their academic and intellectual pursuits, and instills within them a deep sense of identity within and belonging to our community of scholars at Stanford. This means different things for different students at different times, leading to our emphasis on extended one-on-one interactions between students and advisors. The substance of these interactions flows from the scholarship and teaching of the broad intellectual community at Stanford.
