March 23, 2023
A mix of new and renovated facilities will provide 150,000 square feet of teaching, convening, conference, and community spaces.

Stanford University in Stanford, Calif., has begun construction on a new home for its Graduate School of Education.

“The new campus [is] a tangible representation of all that’s happening at the school,” said Dan Schwartz, dean of the Graduate School of Education. “It will help facilitate new research aimed at solving some of the biggest challenges in learning.”

A groundbreaking ceremony took place at the site of the future building on Lasuen Mall, between the Main Quad and Meyer Green

The project includes a renovation of the historic Education Building at 485 Lasuen Mall, construction of a new building at 505 Lasuen Mall, plus the existing Barnum Center for Family and Community Partnerships.. The three buildings will be connected by a 13,500-square-foot courtyard with a garden and outdoor classroom.

The renovated graduate school campus will feature 150,000 square feet of teaching, convening, conference, and community spaces.

It will also house the Stanford Teacher Education Program and the Stanford Accelerator for Learning, which is designed to bring scholars from across the university together with field experts and partners to co-create solutions in learning.
