Stanford WISE Ventures serves as a catalyst leveraging and connecting research, resources, and innovation to advance equity in science, engineering, and mathematics fields, across the Stanford community.

WISE Ventures was first developed in 2012 as a joint initiative of two academic leaders at Stanford then serving as Vice Provosts, on responsible for Faculty Development and Diversity, and the other for Graduate Education. It remains an initiative to connect, support, and strengthen all elements of the campus "ecosystem" in support of its mission to strength pathways for more equitable academic cultures in science, engineering, and mathematics at Stanford.


On Monday, August 7, 2017 Dr. Dafina-Lazarus (D-L) Stewart, Professor, Colorado State University, gave a talk, "Asserting a Total Campus Mandate for Institutional Equity & Justice."  A videorecording of the talk, sponsored by Stanford Biosciences and WISE Ventures,  is available.
