Stanford University News


Homepage

The Stanford News Service is part of the Office of University Communications. We provide assistance to reporters and disseminate much of the university’s news. We also help to publicize and handle media relations for major events, provide media training for key faculty and administrators and serve as a liaison between scholars and media outlets.
