To get their arms around the more than 2,800 ideas for Stanford’s future that came in through the university’s long-range planning process, four steering groups produced white papers summarizing and framing the ideas.
Those white papers will be made available to the campus community beginning Thursday, leading into the next stages of the planning process.
Undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, academic staff and postdoctoral scholars composed the four steering groups that reviewed the ideas from across the university community. A previous video described the work of the Our Community and Engagement Beyond Our University steering groups.
Here, in a second video, the faculty co-chairs of the Research and Education steering groups discuss what went into the development of the white papers that the campus community will soon see and what emerged as some of the major themes in their respective areas.
