Leadership

E-IPER's policies, requirements, and future directions are guided by dedicated faculty representing Stanford's seven schools and many departments. The Executive Committee, led by faculty director Peter Vitousek, provides long-term vision and consistent policies. The Academic Guidance Committee, comprising advisors of PhD students, meets annually to review student progress and offer recommendations to keep all students on track. Many other Affiliated Faculty members are actively engaged in advising students, developing and teaching courses, reviewing prospective student applications, and creating professional development opportunities.
