Club Mission & History
The primary purpose of the Stanford Faculty Club is to provide Stanford University faculty, administrative staff, and other club members with a welcoming venue to promote social interaction, commingling, fellowship, collegiality, and the interchange of ideas and information.
Founded on March 11, 1908, the original Faculty Club was in the Arboretum and burned to the ground in the 1960's. The new and current building was built with a $1,000,000.00 contribution from the Lucie Stern Foundation. The building was designed by San Francisco architect Edward B. Page and the two level structure covers a surface area of 26,000 square feet. It was dedicated on Oct. 1, 1965 in an informal ceremony presided by University President, Wallace Sterling.
