Center Affiliates Help Launch Stanford Human Trafficking Data Lab

Nearly three years ago, Center for Human Rights and International Justice Senior Program Manager Jessie Brunner was invited to Greentree Estate on Long Island, NY to help set the agenda for measuring achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8.7, focused on eradicating human trafficking and child labor. During the third session of the first day, her ears perked up as a Brazilian federal prosecutor addressed the working group on the subject of “Data and knowledge as a spur to government action.”

OIA helps untangle data regulations and access to Stanford resources

Grant Miller, associate professor of medicine, reached out to OIA Director Brendan Walsh and his team in March 2019 with questions about where and how to begin transferring human trafficking data from Brazil to Stanford. Due to the international and sensitive nature of the project, working with personally identifiable human trafficking data proved to be a complex regulatory hurdle, even though most databases used in the Observatory are composed of public records.

OIA and Dean of Research build Stanford Seed Funding site to support faculty research and teaching

Across campus are numerous internal funding opportunities for university research, teaching and other academic endeavors, but considering the expansive nature of the university, the groundwork of figuring out where they are or how to apply has been a challenge. The Office of International Affairs built and launched the Stanford Seed Funding website in order to simplify this process and reduce the administrative burden of obtaining funding.

Summer travel recommendations for faculty and staff going abroad

Are you traveling this summer to conduct research or work on an international project? Take a few minutes to register your trip at Stanford MyTrips.

The international travel registry allows the University to assist travelers in the event of an emergency. If you book your trip through Egencia or Stanford Travel, your trip is registered automatically. If you prefer to book travel through other services, it is still very easy to register your trip.

Stanford faculty address global research challenges with grant support

Stanford's Office for International Affairs awarded faculty funds for international research on water and sanitation issues, anti-tumor compounds, methane emission reduction, human trafficking, and malaria impact.


The Office of International Affairs’ Roberta and Steve Denning International Research Exploration Fund has helped faculty pursue innovative international research since 2013.

"International Academy" Travel Preparation Course for Students

Preparing for international travel can often seem overwhelming, with various policies, handbooks, forms, orientations, and pre-departure checklists to navigate. For administrators of international programs, making sure that information and resources are current and thorough can be a time-consuming process, particularly as the number of international opportunities increase and travel becomes more complex.

SOLO developments enhance student travel preparation

SOLO (Stanford On & Off-campus Learning Opportunities), a partnership between OIA and 20+ academic units on the Stanford campus, aggregates internships, research fellowships, public service trips, study tours, and other Stanford opportunities for students to go off-campus and enrich their academic experience. The website can be used by administrators to post opportunities, collect and review applications, and to help prepare awardees for their off-campus travel.
