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.

Jerry Brown, Governor of California, read “Approaching a State Shift in Earth's Biosphere,” a publication that resulted from the culmination of a year’s work of 22 biologists from 4 countries that identified major biological problems due to human interactions with the Earth and was astonished to learn that this news was not spread beyond the community of scientists.

How you should prepare for international travel

As summer approaches, many people in the Stanford community are planning international travel. As travel to some parts of the world becomes increasingly unpredictable, travelers need to be more proactive about their own safety. While many members of the Stanford community are seasoned travelers, a country's political climate can change from one year to the next. The Office of International Affairs met with Jeffery Hawthorne, international manager in the Office of Risk Management, for some safe travel planning tips.

"GoGlobal" spotlights international research, courses, events at Stanford University

When faculty members add information on their international activities to their Stanford Profiles, that information – a journal article, course or research project – will automatically appear on the Go Global website.

Stanford has created a new website – GoGlobal – to showcase the university's international research, teaching and learning on campus and abroad, as well as events and news.

Each year, Stanford faculty members invite approximately 1,500 visiting scholars from around the world who are cutting edge research leaders in their countries and experts in their field. The Office of International Affairs is currently examining ways to help Stanford faculty develop new international collaborations and strengthen existing partnerships with these high impact visitors. As part of effort to promote our visiting scholars’ top-notch collaborations with Stanford faculty, we will interview a few of them in 2015.

New and Improved Stanford University travel registry

As we head into the spring and summer breaks, many in the Stanford community will be planning international travel, either for the holidays and/or for academic trips. One of the first things a traveler should do when travel plans have been confirmed is to register travel on the OIA travel registry. As travel to some parts of the world becomes increasingly risky, travelers need to be more pro-active about their own safety.

Leading global initiatives at Stanford University

Established under the auspices of the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research, the Office of International Affairs (OIA) provides a centralized location for international related services to faculty and students.  We had the opportunity to meet the newly appointed director, Dr. Brendan Walsh, and to discuss how the Office serves the international related needs of the Stanford community.
