Work with Other Students
Here you’ll find ways to connect with other Stanford students interested in learning through partnerships and groups.
Peer Engagement Network
Rich and deep learning often happens through collaboration. PEN (the Peer Engagement Network) is a way for you to be matched with a Stanford partner. Choose an Accountability Partner, a Focus & Study Partner, a Processing Partner, or a Teaching Partner.
Share with other undergrads and grads who identify with ADHD (diagnosis not required). This is a facilitated group that provides a confidential space for discussing strategies and personal experiences.
Fail BetterIn the words of Samuel Beckett, we’ll learn how to “fail better” by applying research-based strategies that increase self-compassion. This new group provides a safe space for workshopping skillful responses to perfectionism, comparison, confusion, self-doubt, and other difficult feelings that can arise in academic contexts.
Cross some to-dos off your list before the weekend and stay accountable during in-person productivity sessions. Students are welcome to drop by between 10:00-2:00 on Fridays for light refreshments and an optional goal-setting chat with a Learning Specialist. Low-distraction work space provided! To join a session, please stop by the front desk on the third floor of the Student Services Building. All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome, and no registration is needed!
Join a group of supportive peers who are working productively and focus on accomplishing your own academic goal. Brief shares about goals before and after the session encourage accountability and metacognition about the work process. Students will wrap up by identifying concrete next steps to further advance their projects.
Revise & Resubmit
Every scholar at some point is told to “revise and resubmit.” Writing a dissertation, thesis, or scholarly publication has its own unique mental and emotional challenges, but writing does not need to be a solo endeavor. Join Dr. Mitch Dandignac and Stanford graduate students to share writing strategies, receive support, and get words on the page.
