Louis W. Foster Resource Center

McClelland Building

The Louis W. Foster Resource Center at Stanford Graduate School of Business was made possible by a gift from the Louis and Gladyce Foster Family Foundation in honor of Louis W. Foster (AB ’35).

Mr. Foster exemplified the entrepreneurial spirit as founder of 20th Century Industries, a company that revolutionized the insurance industry by offering low-cost insurance direct to the customer.


The Foster Resource Center offers an intimate environment for Stanford graduate students to meet, work, conduct research, and receive advising. Workstations, conference rooms, and a collaborative meeting space are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A collection of digital and printed research papers and course readers is also available.


The Foster Resource Center is open 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
