The program aims to put the automobile at the center of the university and raise the quality of academic discourse at Stanford and beyond. The program fosters an intellectual community, bridging the humanities and fine arts, social sciences, design, science and engineering, and the professions.
Realizing Our Vision
To realize this vision, the Revs Program at Stanford will:
- Stimulate research within and across disciplines
- Provide teaching and learning opportunities across the curriculum and beyond the university
- Create a highly-accessible knowledge repository that captures information on both specific automobiles and automobiles in general with exacting attention to detail and thorough documentation
- Forge a vibrant, worldwide discussion among scholars and students, collectors and enthusiasts
The automobile is at the core of understanding both the 20th and 21st century. The Revs Program at Stanford is inspired by the opportunity to become the world’s leading center to facilitate this understanding. The Revs Program at Stanford was made possible by the vision of Miles Collier, the founder of The Revs Institute, business executive, artist, and philanthropist.
