About the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE)
As the designated gateway to undergraduate education at Stanford, VPUE strives to connect students intellectually with the full range of our educational opportunities and to promote the active engagement of all faculty, instructors and staff with undergraduate students.
For undergraduates, VPUE is the nexus for programs and initiatives that help students define and achieve their intellectual ambitions and develop a sense of civic purpose at Stanford. These include investigative introductory courses taught by esteemed faculty, targeted classes in writing and rhetoric, undergraduate research support, academic advising and mentoring, overseas and off-campus study programs, evidence-based and inclusive learning and teaching practices, and opportunities to pursue public service campus-wide. For faculty, VPUE serves as a principal conduit for furthering interaction with undergraduates and discovering ways in which working with students can enrich one's research agenda. VPUE collaborates with faculty, staff and students to provide the world-class experiences for which Stanford is known. All VPUE resources are dedicated to involving faculty with the undergraduate experience, connecting students with transformative opportunities and fully realizing a liberal education at Stanford.
The Office of Academic Advising directly impacts the experience of Stanford undergraduates in three major ways: first year and transfer student transition; pre-major and pre-professional advising; and academic standing and petitions. As the hub of critical aspects of the undergraduate experience, the entire Advising staff is highly visible in the lives of undergraduates. Advising staff is also uniquely responsible for and responsive to issues and concerns from parents regarding students' transition to college and their academic welfare over the course of their undergraduate years.
VPUE advocates for and supports diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging at Stanford through our teaching, policies, programming, and partnerships across the university. VPUE seeks to create a work environment motivated and shaped by the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, in which all staff explicitly and mindfully act to implement these principles. We seek a work environment which values input from all, transparency and openness in decision-making, and respectful and supportive engagement.
