Thank you so much for another great year working with SWS. You and your team achieved things I have been wanting for more than three years. And you make it easy for anyone on campus to replicate that success. Amazing! – Brendan M. Walsh, Ph.D. , Director, Office of International Affairs

Designed For

Large campus units or major university initiatives whose sites require unique design and/or functionality beyond news listings, profiles for faculty, students and staff, event calendars, publications, and courses. Custom projects also suit evolving websites that need multiple phases of work.

Really, the site is beautiful and President Hennessy was very proud to share it, and the video, with the board today. Thank you so much for everything. This site has been a great hands-on demonstration to Building 10 of Stanford Web Services capabilities! – Lisa Lapin, Vice President, University Communications
