Stanford’s off-campus engagement was a central theme of its Board of Trustees’ Feb. 11 and 12 meetings, which also saw approval of two building projects, a discussion on the University’s public arts and a presentation from the new president of the Lucile Packard children’s hospital.

As “a major theme” of Stanford’s Long-Range Planning process, presentations regarding the University’s efforts to reach out to entities off campus were a major component of the Trustees’ meetings.

Among these efforts is the discovery task force, co-chaired by Juliet Brodie, law professor and associate dean for clinical education at Stanford Law School, and Marcia Cohen, senior associate dean of finance and administration at the School of Medicine.
