In 2011 Stanford submitted its proposal to partner with New York City to build StanfordNYC, a world-class applied sciences and engineering campus that was expected to attract new talent to the University and to become a new hub of tech innovation and entrepreneurship. StanfordNYC would occupy an iconic, state-of-the-art, environmentally sustainable campus on 10 acres on Roosevelt Island.
The colorful two-volume proposal now is available on reserve in Green Library and in the Terman Engineering Library in the Huang Engineering Center with call number LD3049.5 .N4 S73 2011. The document is also available in an electronic version.
After months of negotiations at end of 2011 Stanford “determined it would not be in the best interest of the university to continue to pursue the opportunity”; the proposal was withdrawn that December. Nevertheless, the proposal presents a grand vision of Stanford’s values and position in relation to research collaboration with industry.
