ABOUT STANFORD AND RESIDENTIAL & DINING ENTERPRISES:

Stanford University, located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, is one of the world's leading teaching and research universities. Since its opening in 1891, Stanford has been dedicated to finding solutions to big challenges and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world.

Stanford and R&DE are committed to creating and sustaining a diverse environment.
