stanford leadership for sustainability

 The Stanford School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences is home to four departments and three interdisciplinary programs, offering a range of graduate and undergraduate degrees, as well as professional education programs. At Stanford Earth, we develop the knowledge, talent, and leadership to understand the changing Earth and help solve the enormous resource and environmental challenges facing the world. We are committed to a collaborative, collegial, inclusive, and tolerant community. We are advancing knowledge and educating a new generation of students to help solve the enormous resource and environmental challenges facing the world both now and in the decades to come.

The Stanford Center for Professional Development, a part of The Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL), makes it possible for today's best and brightest professionals to enroll in Stanford University courses and programs while they maintain their careers. Our portfolio reflects the exciting research and world-class teaching of Stanford faculty from all of Stanford’s schools. Courses are delivered online and, in some cases, at Stanford, at your work site, or at international locations – providing a global community of learners with flexibility and convenience and enabling them to apply their education to their work.
