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."
