Traffic decongestion projects at home and abroad

If you are looking for an incentive for going green at Stanford, join Congestion and Parking Incentives (CAPRI), a new commuting program, focused on peak commuters. Launched in April 2012, almost 4,000 Stanford people have registered on this pilot project and over $75,000 has been paid out as incentives so far. Professor Prabhakar, lead investigator of CAPRI and professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has previously tested his project to mitigate traffic congestion during peak commuting hours in Bangalore, India and Singapore.

Innovative classrooms connecting Stanford around the world

Over the last decade, Stanford has provided exceptional online education opportunities to audiences all over the world. As part of its effort to invest in education and technology infrastructure, the Graduate School of Business (GSB) opened Highly Immersive and Enhanced Classrooms on campus at the Knight Management Center in 2013. The facilities aim to enrich the overall student experience and expand opportunities for online and distance education. In collaboration with GSB, Stanford Center at Peking University (SCPKU) is now setting up identical facilities in China.

In 2013, the Office of International Affairs (OIA), in collaboration with the Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning (VPOL), granted funding to develop innovative online and blended courses in collaboration with international non-Stanford faculty. OIA met with Professor Matthew Strehlow, one of the winners of the OIA-VPOL Faculty Seed Grants for Online International Learning, to hear about his course that has launched in mid-April.

OIA announces recipients of International Research Exploration Fund

The Office of International Affairs was created to reduce the complexities of international research in order to increase international collaboration. Supported by the Vice Provost and Dean of Research, the International Research Exploration Fund helps faculty develop new programs and initiatives that demonstrate "proof-of-concept" for further university or external funding. In short, OIA grants are intended to facilitate collaboration among faculty and students and to foster new relationships at Stanford and with research partners all over the world.

Stanford officials continue to monitor MERS

Stanford officials are monitoring global health concerns about Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus – commonly referred to as MERS – and in particular its spread in recent months to South Korea.

While there have been no reports of infection on the Stanford campus or in the broad local community, officials want to make sure that faculty, staff and students who are traveling to or hosting visitors from the affected areas are aware of resources available if they have questions or concerns.
