About VPUE Resources for faculty

The Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education serves as the primary conduit for faculty interested in engaging with undergraduates in both academic and research contexts. We advocate for undergraduate education in collaboration with students, faculty, schools and departments across the university. All of our resources are dedicated to connecting students with Stanford, involving faculty with undergraduate education, and fully realizing a liberal education.
