Long Range Planning 


Prof. Ramesh Johari will lead a town hall style discussion to explore the staff perspective on long range planning. President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Provost Persis Drell are inviting all members of the Stanford community to give input about long-range planning. After celebrating Stanford’s 125 years of innovation in education and research, now is the time to ask what new challenges and opportunities lie before us in the years ahead. Our staff is a critical part of this planning process – please join us in developing thoughts for the consideration of the President and Provost.
