Stanford University, in Palo Alto, California, is a private university in the United States. It was founded in 1891 by the gift of the successful businessman Leland Stanford (1824-1893), a former governor of California, on the site of his country estate.[3]

Stanford is one of the world's leading research institutions, with top professors and researchers in the fields of physics, medicine, engineering, and the natural sciences.[4]


Some have criticized Stanford for its allegedly liberal policies, such as

  • expelling a doctoral student from its program because he told the truth about mandatory abortion in China
  • Banning of all ROTC programs because they allegedly discriminate against homosexuals.
