Day 10 & 11 of Summer Springboard (Session 3):
- Stanford University Campus Tour:
- In 1885, Jane and Leland Stanford established Stanford University in memory of their son, Leland Junior. Their intent was to establish a “University of high degree” that would “qualify students for personal success and direct usefulness in life and promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization.”
- Today, Stanford is a research university where teaching, learning and research are integral to the university’s mission.
