The Presidential Initiative IDEAL – Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access in a Learning Environment – is about the future of Stanford. IDEAL’s objective is to move the institution culturally to the future. The success of our teaching and research missions depends on doing this well. Through the IDEAL initiative, the university seeks to create positive change that will make Stanford better for everyone.
The goals of IDEAL are to ensure:
- that diversity of thought, experience and approach is represented in all sectors of our education and research enterprise
- that all members of the campus community feel they belong and are supported regardless of their background, identity, or affiliations
- that all members of the campus community have broad access to the opportunities and benefits of Stanford
