The intellectual life at Stanford is enhanced by the contributions of a diverse faculty. To build a broad-based academic community, the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity supports a number of faculty groups, community events, and programs. The Vice Provost co-convenes the University's Diversity Cabinet along with the Vice Provosts for Graduate Education and Undergraduate Education.

Stanford understands that holistic student development happens with support and access both inside and outside the realm of academics. The diversity on Stanford’s campus can be felt through classes, student organizations, residential life, and eight individual community centers. These different venues not only serve as a general resource for the campus community, but more importantly, serve the critical purpose of empowering students to strive to reach their full potential. The community centers include:
Asian American Activities Center
Bechtel International Center
Black Community Services Center
Office of Accessible Education
El Centro Chicano
Native American (American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian Program) Cultural Center
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered (LGBT) Community Resource Center
In addition to these community centers, a list of the hundreds of student-organized affinity groups and clubs can be found online.
