Welcome to Stanford Undergrad

Stanford Undergrad is your guide to academics and educational opportunities offered through the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and our campus partners.

LSP Student Voices

LSP students George, Airin, Caio, and Mia share a bit about themselves and offer written reflections and insights into their unique experiences, within LSP and at Stanford. 

"LSP was a huge factor and point of support during this transition. Being exposed to college-level classwork and rigor was especially helpful coming from an under-resourced community and school that didn’t prepare me. I was able to cultivate a sense of community and belonging in this new place I now call home." — Airin Brittany Valdez-Monroy

The Advising Resource Toolkit

These advising tools may be used cooperatively during an advising conversation or you may use them on your own, to help you prepare for a conversation with your academic advisor. They are intended to:

  • help frame your reflections throughout your time at Stanford
  • guide your strategic thinking if you face challenges or difficulty
  • facilitate your academic planning and intellectual development
  • support you as you consider post-undergraduate education

I was strongly encouraged by my major and other peers to apply to the program to not only compliment my studies by engaging in race relations in a different context, but to take advantage of the many opportunities that Stanford provides.
