About University
According to the school, In 1885, Jane and Leland Stanford established Stanford University in memory of their son, Leland Stanford, Junior. Their intent was to create a 'University of high degree' that would 'qualify students for personal success and direct usefulness in life and promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization.' Today, Stanford is a research university where teaching, learning and research are all integral to the school's mission. Stanford values close interaction between undergraduates and faculty. Student participation in research is strongly supported. Stanford's entrepreneurial character draws from its Western location, the legacy of its founders and its proximity to Silicon Valley. Academic excellence crosses disciplines, ranging from humanities to social sciences to engineering and the sciences. Current faculty members have 20 Nobel Prizes and 4 Pulitzer prizes. Students, distinguished by initiative, love of learning and commitment to public service, are talented in many areas, including academics, art, music and athletics. Stanford's extraordinarily beautiful campus is located in a dynamic and diverse area between San Francisco and San Jose in Northern California. A high priority is placed on sustainable development throughout campus. Stanford is considered a Bicycle Friendly Campus. There are 11 Stanford overseas programs, as well as programs in Washington D.C. and New York City and a marine biology center in Monterey. The university promotes excellence in both academics and athletics. Stanford has won the Directors' Cup, which honors the most successful program in NCAA Division I sports, the last 21 years. Stanford athletes have won 129 NCAA national championships, the most of any school.
