Mission Statements

Graduate School of Education Mission

Aiming towards the ideal of enabling all people to achieve maximum benefit from their educational experiences, the Stanford Graduate School of Education seeks to continue as a world leader in ground-breaking, cross-disciplinary inquiries that shape educational practices, their conceptual underpinnings, and the professions that serve the enterprise.

The School also seeks to develop the knowledge, wisdom, and imagination of its students to enable them to take leadership positions in efforts to improve the quality of education around the globe.

Office of Academic Affairs Mission

The Academic Affairs Office collaborates with students, faculty and staff in pursuing the Graduate School of Education's mission. We strive to empower students on their own unique journeys, preparing them to fulfill their academic goals and reach their potential as educational leaders. To that end, the Office provides services and resources on policies and procedures regarding academic programs and events, financial aid, admissions, career services and recruitment.
