Stanford Global Studies (SGS) is committed to outreach to foster global competencies, promote inclusive and equitable opportunities in global education, and share Stanford’s research expertise and educational resources with students and educators in our broader community and beyond.
With funding from Title VI of the Higher Education Act, SGS has continued to collaborate with campus partners to develop and advance community outreach with K-14 institutions in support of area/international studies, professional development for educators, and curriculum development.
Education Partnerships at Stanford and Beyond
Education Partnerships at Stanford and Beyond is a new report providing an overview of our community outreach initiatives supported by Title VI funding from the U.S. Department of Education from 2014 - 2022.
Through our outreach programs, we share resources and expertise with students and educators in the community that deepen the understanding of key regions, cultures, languages, and global issues.
Over the last eight years, Stanford’s NRCs have collaborated with dozens of internal and external partners on more than 80 events and programs for K-14 educators and students, offered a diverse range of globally-focused courses, and provided more than $10 million to 267 undergraduate and graduate students for intensive language study.
National Resource Centers
Currently, four centers—Stanford Global Studies (SGS), the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS), the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), and the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (CREEES)—are designated as National Resource Centers (NRCs) by the U.S. Department of Education, which strengthen access to training in major languages of their respective regions, broaden area studies training across disciplines, and pursue innovative collaborations with other educational organizations and local communities.

Education Partnership for Internationalizing Curriculum (EPIC)
In collaboration with other Stanford partners, these two NRCs have established the Education Partnership for Internationalizing Curriculum (EPIC), which focuses on strengthening the internationalization of curricula and the professionalization of language instruction at community colleges and K-12 institutions. Collaborators include the Stanford Graduate School of Education's Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET), the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE), and the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA).
