Education as Self-Fashioning

Professor of Energy Resources Engineering Margot Gerritsen (Stanford School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences) shares her experience of teaching Stanford first-year students in VPUE's Education as Self-Fashioning (ESF) program. ESF helps students explore and articulate the ways that a college education can bring clarity to your thoughts, your self, and ultimately your life as a whole.
 

Engage with Faculty

A hallmark of undergraduate education at Stanford is the opportunity to work closely with faculty (renowned scholars in their fields) who are actively engaged in research. Faculty can give you advice on your academic plans, mentor you in a research project, introduce you to colleagues, write letters of recommendation, and serve as guides and models for your intellectual pursuits. The relationships you form with your professors, advisors, and mentors will shape your undergraduate experience and influence you in ways that will last a lifetime.

Stanford in New York

It was incredible to understand the interconnectivity of work, academics, and passion projects while in New York. I had a ton of support from Project for Public Spaces colleagues, Stanford in New York staff and teachers, and on-campus mentors to pursue independent public space research that related back to the work I was doing for PPS and to the classes I was taking. Recognizing that learning happens in many environments was an invaluable lesson that I will take forward with me wherever I go.
