Welcome to the Stanford Family!

Greetings and welcome to our new parents and families of the class of 2025 from the Stanford Parent and Family Engagement program.

You’re invited

We invite you to a series of virtual social hours to meet other parents and families in your area and have the opportunity to ask questions of Stanford representatives and volunteers.

Our goal is to have a lively conversation, so come ready with questions. We encourage you to join the welcome event for your region, but please feel free to join us at another one if that date and time works best for you. We hope you can join us!
