About Stanford University

From the Stanford University Founding Grant- November 11- 1885:

…the Nature- Object- and Purposes of the Institution Hereby Founded- to Be:

Its nature- that of a university with such seminaries of learning as shall make it of the highest grade- including mechanical institutes- museums- galleries of art- laboratories- and conservatories- together with all things necessary for the study of agriculture in all its branches- and for mechanical training- and the studies and exercises directed to the cultivation and enlargement of the mind:

Its object- to qualify its students for personal success- and direct usefulness in life;

And its purposes- to promote the public welfare by exercising an influence in behalf of humanity and civilization- teaching the blessings of liberty regulated by law- and inculcating love and reverence for the great principles of government as derived from the inalienable rights of man to life- liberty- and the pursuit of happiness.
