Who We Are

Residential Education can be described in many different ways.  However, the most important thing to remember is that Residential Education is about the people it serves!

From providing programming in the residences to community engagement, ResEd oversees a myriad of opportunities for both the student body, as well as for the professional university staff by bringing both groups together to engage in the development of intellectual, educational and community building policies, programs, and activities.

We are concerned with the experience of individual residents and how to best serve each of them given the diversity and complexity of each experience. Our work seeks to provide every student the opportunity to engage and challenge themselves in a way that is unique to them whether that is through facilitating the process to become a member of a theme community, creating a selection process or trainings that seek to help both our applicants and our appointed team members grow and develop skills they can take with them after they leave the farm, providing space for the creation and engagement in the arts, or simply providing the support network and resources students need to navigate their time at Stanford.

ResEd strives to provide the undergrads on campus with a community experience within our larger research "university bubble" by bringing together the conviction that living and learning are integrated and integral as a part of the undergraduate educational experience at Stanford University.
