We are fortunate at Stanford to have so many bright and talented faculty, students, staff, and alumni in our community. The Black Community Services Center is a place for students to delve into their passions and broaden their world view. Our programs foster engaging discussion as well as collaborative peer learning. We acknowledge that much of our students' learning happens outside of the classroom whether informally with each other or other members of our community. We are thankful to be a place where this kind of intellectual engagement thrives.
Our students are always working on ways to enhance and continue our initiatives. The following are just some of the programs dedicated to students intellectual development:
- The Ernest Houston Johnson Scholars program (EHJS) which creates avenues for black freshmen to develop mentorships relationships with upperclassmen and faculty
- Intellectual roundtables which invite guest speakers to the Black Community Services Center for intimate discussions with students
- Our annual Academic and Community Awards as well as our Black Graduation Ceremony highlight the achievements of our students and showcase the excellence in our community
