The Stanford School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences

Stanford Earth, School Of Earth, Energy and Environmental Science at Stanford University comprises of four departments in Geological Sciences, Geophysics, Earth System Science, and Energy Resources Engineering. Here, the researchers and students conduct research or engage in field learning on all seven continents and oceans. The school also offers three inter-disciplinary degree programs centered around sustainability.

In 2014 the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences established the O'Donohue Family Stanford Educational Farm on 6 acres near the university's historic Red Barn. The farm is a living laboratory offering academic and experiential learning opportunities for the Stanford community and beyond. The farm utilizes agroecological relationships and natural diversity to grow over 200 varieties of vegetables, flowers, herbs, field crops and fruit. Students come to the farm to test new ideas about the biological, social and environmental aspects of farming and gain experience in the practice of sustainable agriculture. On-farm research provides students hands-on learning opportunities.
