Stanford University offers a wide array of opportunities for students to study abroad. Historically, these opportunities were administered by various departments from all corners of the university. In 2015, Stanford’s Office of International Affairs started work on Stanford Off-Campus Learning Opportunities (SOLO), an initiative to bring all of these opportunities under one roof. SOLO makes it easier for students to discover new opportunities, and gives Stanford administration the tools they need to help students prepare to make the most of these learning opportunities and measure the performance of those opportunities.
Collaboration between people across campus made this project possible and working together is the foundation of SOLO’s success. Please join Pauline Larmaraud, Associate Director at Stanford University’s Office of International Affairs (OIA) and Joe Crespo, Director of Accounts at Aten Design Group as they discuss:
How the SOLO team built trust with a wide array of stakeholders.
How the SOLO team organized the client/vendor partnership around an agile software development framework.
Successful outcomes of SOLO.
How Stanford is leveraging the Drupal’s open source nature to clone SOLO as the basis for a new grant management system for faculty: Seed Funding.
