Alumni are a vital part of Stanford's MLA Program.

With more than 260 MLA graduates to date, our alumni community grows larger every year. Many of our alumni continue to share their knowledge, expertise, and experience with each other and with our program. It's easy to get involved and stay connected to the resources, friendships, and support you enjoyed as a student, and to the privileges and benefits you're entitled to as alumni, including

  • access to Green Library, Stanford Auxiliary Library, and paging from the Art Library stacks for seven days within each twelve-month period. Details here.
  • invitations to all MLA-sponsored events, including special lectures, commencement activities, and social gatherings 
  • open invitation to submit your work to the Tangents and Confluence journals, and to represent the MLA program at local and national conferences
  • ability to take current MLA courses for a reduced fee
  • opportunity to participate in our Intellectual Journeys
  • eligibility to join the Stanford Alumni Association, which offers valuable programs and special benefits for members, including access to the Arrillaga Alumni Center, a 10% discount at the Bookstore, and an additional 7 days access to the libraries
