Campus Engagement Mini-Grants

With the return to an in-person college experience comes an opportunity to reshape and re-engage in the making of campus life. These 'we are Stanford' Campus Engagement Mini-Grants were established to foster staff and students’ creative ideas for new, exciting, and/or meaningful ways to gather, interact, and bring liveliness to campus spaces, thereby contributing to that shaping.

Students gather on lawns for Farm Fest. Two students in the foreground are smiling and conversing. Hay bales, food vendor tents, a band, and a crowd of students are in the middle and background.

Farm Fests

Farm Fests are an exciting opportunity for students to take a break, have fun with friends, and connect as a campus community! Part of the Stanford Social Project's effort to bring more vibrant social events to campus, students work with staff from campus units like the Office of Student Engagement, Stanford Campus Engagement, and Stanford Arts to curate these events complete with food vendors, music, crafts, and more!
