Stanford University pilots a new exhibit, ‘The @Stanford Project,’ which envisions a learning environment for undergraduate students learning, working, and serving to meet industrial and personal missions, rather than achieving proficiency in a major. The project challenges students to visualize the ways in which Stanford will evolve in its research, workforce development and philanthropic support, with the influences of technology and encouraging students to follow personal missions instead of professional objectives. Helping students to visualize missions early in their academic careers could spur new outcomes in international study and recruitment, startup innovation, and community outreach — all important elements of the 21st century college profile.
