Renovation & New Building

The vision for the proposed Graduate School of Education (GSE) Renovation and New Building project is to create an identifiable campus, which reflects Stanford’s commitment to education and establish a stronger GSE identity. The project aims to construct a new “heart” of the school, establish a vibrant community, provide state-of-the-art facilities and classrooms that support research, teaching and experimentation, and provide for community and convening spaces to increase outreach to educators, researchers, policy makers and entrepreneurs.

Located adjacent to Meyer Green, the project would renovate the existing GSE building, and expand and densify the adjacent Barnum Center utilizing architectural design complementing the surrounding neighborhood. Existing spaces will be redesigned and reconfigured for more efficient use of space. An Educational Forum will serve as the vibrant hub of the GSE and will support social interaction and convening for various events. Special attention will be paid to the future long-range regional plan of densification, landscape, and historical context to maintain the park-like atmosphere of the region.
