Proposals and website documenting
Stanford New York city campus proposal.
In December, 2010 New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the city would pursue the
possibility of attracting a world-class university to create a research and graduate
teaching center focused on applied science and technology. Stanford accepted the invitation
from the New York City Economic Development Corp. (NYCEDC) to explore the opportunity.
President Hennessy stated: "Stanford has served as an intellectual incubator for the
emergence of the Silicon Valley and has the potential to do so again. The opportunity
presented by the city of New York is one that Stanford should at least explore. The concept
as laid out by New York plays to many of our strengths, particularly the innovative and
entrepreneurial spirit that characterizes this university."
