Program Overview
The Stanford Peer Facilitation Program is born out of the expressed needs and interest by both undergraduate and graduate Stanford students to engage in structured conversations and learning experiences around Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) with their peers in their respective student-based spaces-- organizations and dorms. 

The mission of the Stanford Peer Facilitation Program is to nurture equitable student communities at Stanford University through peer-led explorations of social identity and power. Our goal is to create a cohort of student leaders who foster a campus culture where every student feels seen, heard, and valued.
