  • Navigating School in Uncertain Times Webinar Recording Now Available
    On Wednesday, February 3rd, Dr. Denise Pope, Senior Lecturer at the Stanford University Graduate School of Education and expert on parenting, student stress, anxiety, well-being, and engagement, shared with us practical tips and guidelines to best support grades 6-12 students with learning during these uncertain times. The recording of this webinar is now available here  (59 minutes).
  • Resource and Support for Harassment & Hate Towards Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders during COVID-19 
    As you may have seen on the news, heard from friends or family members, or experienced yourself, harassment and hate crimes towards Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) have risen markedly during the COVID-19 crisis. A recent poll indicated that 60% of Americans have witnessed someone blaming people of Asian ancestry for COVID-19. While this may be the most recent manifestation of a long history of anti-Asian and anti-immigrant sentiment within the United States, Stanford University firmly rejects racism and hate speech.

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for all that you are doing, whether on the front lines of clinical care and teaching, in the research arena, sheltering in place, and the many other activities that are helping to keep our community safe. I am continually impressed with the extraordinary feats our faculty are able and willing to accomplish. Please know that the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity is here to serve as a resource to you, our community, at this difficult time. You may always reach out to my office ( with questions, concerns and suggestions. We hope that you all stay safe and healthy, and that you are practicing self-care during this stressful time. We look forward to continuing to work with you now and after this epidemic is resolved.
