Faculty Athletic Fellows Program

Faculty Athletics Fellows are a group of faculty committed to strengthening and harmonizing the ties between athletics and academics for Stanford’s student-athletes. Each team will have one or several Faculty Athletics Fellows, who will build rapport with student-athletes and coaches and serve as liaisons and mentors regarding academic resources and opportunities, the challenges student-athletes face both inside and outside the classroom, and career aspirations.   

Program Goals

  • To support and strengthen the ties between athletics and academics at Stanford  
  • To further advance the connections and rapport between our student-athletes and coaches and the faculty 
  • To provide student-athletes with accessible additional sources of support and mentoring  
  • To provide additional guidance to student-athletes in pursuing their academic goals, in managing the demands of their academic and athletic responsibilities, and in pursuing their career aspirations both inside and outside their sport. 
  • To cultivate awareness and appreciation of student-athlete experiences among the faculty
