Cross-School Learning Opportunities
VPGE provides seed funding to initiatives that foster cross-school interactions for graduate students. The Stanford Graduate Summer Institute (SGSI) offers noncredit interdisciplinary short courses exclusively for Stanford graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. VPGE also seeks to facilitate enrollment in courses outside of students' home departments and schools.
Leadership, pedagogy, communication, and entrepreneurship are topics of interest to graduate students across the University. VPGE collaborates with other departments, such as the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Graduate Life Office, and the Hume Writing Center to raise the visibility and expand the breadth of these offerings.
