DEI support for Stanford Earth Graduate Students

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is also a resource for graduate students and researchers within Stanford's School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences.  We work to provide students and postdocs with the latest information on funding, conferences, and student groups to help them meet their academic and outreach goals.  If you're a Stanford Earth student and postdoc, we encourage you to explore the different academic and cultural offerings listed below.  

Mentoring opportunities

  • Mentor SURGE scholars during the summer through SURGE program
  • Find community, mentors, and mentees at DEI Student Group Quarterly Lunch Meetings
  • Participate in Webinars and speak to students across the country about Stanford Earth
