We are wayward thinkers—learners, doers, and teachers defining a new kind of organization at Stanford. We are research faculty who love implementation, practitioners who love to study new ideas, experts who take class from their students, staff members who mentor senior faculty. The d.school invites us all to be lifelong explorers of innovation.
If it weren’t for our shared values, our different approaches might make our work together impossible. We’ve created a culture that preserves the creative tensions that develop between theory and practice, teaching and administration, and student and faculty, and which are inherent in the diversity of our disciplines. We have a heart for this challenge, for our students, and for each other.
