Rationale

IT Services supports Stanford’s mission by delivering information technology to support research, learning, teaching, and advanced patient care.

IT Services seeks to be a trusted advisor to the Stanford community, providing strategies and services that meet real business needs.

Rationale

IT Services must engage with the Stanford community to anticipate and support the IT needs of a multi-campus, world-class research university and medical institution.

Our support models need to be proactive and continuously available around the clock because Stanford is mobile and global. As a member of the Stanford community, you expect untethered, on-demand, and seamless access to the applications, services, and support you need to get your work done.

Our goal is ensure that the services we provide can meet campus needs for research computing, emerging pedagogy, advancements in patient care, and inter-department, inter-school, and inter-institutional collaboration. We must provide rapid, secure, and efficient delivery of the best innovations available in the market, and support those innovations through a variety of methods and channels.
