Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging - Programs and Resources

Main content start

OFDDE seeks to advance the cause of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging at Stanford through a number of initiatives and activities; some that are directly tied to the university-wide IDEAL initiative and others that are built into the mission of the office. Here you will find professional development/educational programs, groups, and resources for faculty members who seek to learn more about creating inclusive and welcoming environments in classrooms, labs, departments and units. 


NEW - Cornell Interactive Theatre Ensemble – “Hang in There and Be Tough"
