Core values are the fundamental beliefs of an organization. At Land, Buildings & Real Estate the following are our core values as Caretakers of a LEGACY: Leadership, Exploration, Gratitude, Accountability, Community, and You.

The legacy is a gift of both physical place and foundational values that guide the mission of teaching and research. Our contribution is the stewardship of Stanford’s physical, natural and financial resources. As we care for this gift, we leave our imprint on the university, making our own contributions to the evolution of the campus as a vibrant community where people live, learn, work, and play.
