Stanford University Press Takes Center Stage at Faculty Senate Meeting; Chairs of the Two Committees Deliberating on the Future of the Stanford University Press Spoke about their Recommendations
From Stanford News:
The Faculty Senate on Thursday heard from the leaders of two faculty committees that have recently completed reports on the future of the Stanford University Press – one convened by the senate and another convened by Provost Persis Drell.
While the reports differ in scope, they share the same goals: to create new and stronger relationships between the Press and the faculty and administration of Stanford, to put the nonprofit publisher on a firm financial footing, and to ensure that the Press will thrive.
The provostial committee, convened in the spring, completed its work in October and shared its findings with the senate’s ad hoc committee, which was convened in the fall.
