Our Culture

Stanford Engineering Quad

Graduate Student Action Committee

Who are we?

We are a group of Chemical Engineering graduate students working to improve the Stanford Chemical Engineering graduate school experience. Our activities are funded through the Chemical Engineering Department and Stanford internal grants.

What do we do?

The Action Committee looks to represent the interests of the ChemE masters and doctoral students in interactions with the Stanford Chemical Engineering Department. Additionally, the Action Committee sponsors and coordinates a variety of mentoring, social, and professional development events.  The Action Committee is always looking for new members and opportunities abound for all levels of participation.  All graduate students enrolled in Chemical Engineering courses are welcome to participate in our meetings and events. You can also become involved as a group representative or member of one of our many subcommittees. More information can be found on the ChemE GSAC website.

Black Lives Matter - University Resources

It is a time of heightened awareness of violence against Black Americans and an important moment for reflection around the world. Resources and support from Stanford University. We're committed to racial justice.

Diversity Equity and Inclusion Initiatives

A commitment to diversity is a commitment to excellence. Our goal is to create an inclusive environment where differences are celebrated, and students of all backgrounds are empowered to be their authentic selves.
