Welcome to the Stanford LBRE Black Advisory Committee!

The Stanford LBRE Black Advisory Committee (“LBRE BAC”) is comprised of committed African American employees of the Land Buildings and Real Estate Department and their allies at Stanford University.  Given the present climate of race relations in America, the BAC felt that it was vital to become better diversity, equity, and inclusion ("DEI") advocates. 

This site will provide useful information about the BAC's mission, vision, values, and resources to support LBRE's goal for DE&I and belonging.
