Strategic Planning

Stanford University

Stanford's long-range planning process seeks broad input to collaboratively create a shared vision for the university that anticipates future trends and identifies key opportunities. 

Stanford Medicine

Stanford Medicine is conducting an integrated strategic planning process that encompasses Stanford Health Care, Stanford School of Medicine, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford (Stanford Children’s Health).


Employee Recognition

The Annual Staff Recognition Program has been a long-standing tradition to honor staff whose work and dedication have helped make Stanford the great institution that it is today. Without their contributions, the advances of faculty, researchers and students--across all of the school's missions--would not be possible.

Process Excellence

Working with teams to discover how to improve the quality and value of our administrative operations.

Staff Mentorship

Experienced staff members serve as mentors to staff interested in developing their professional skills and in exploring other careers within the School of Medicine.
