UTS partners with Stanford Australia Foundation
UTS Business School and Stanford Australia Foundation (SAF) are pleased to announce the establishment of the 'University of Technology Sydney and Stanford Australia Foundation Capacity Building and Engagement Series', a five-year partnership commencing in early 2019.
This partnership will strengthen academic excellence and build capacity in Australia’s not-for-profit sector.
Professor Chris Earley, Dean of UTS Business School, said this is a great opportunity to bring together two outstanding and world-class university brands, renowned for Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, as well as Healthcare.
"As a distinctive business school, our mission is to leverage STEM and Healthcare disciplines with the very best of business education and research for a unique perspective and global impact on business, so this program supports this vision perfectly.”
"UTS Business School is excited to enter into this partnership with the Stanford Australia Foundation as the Foundation has been instrumental is providing opportunities to leaders in the Australian 'For Purpose' sector," Professor Earley said.
To-date, SAF has awarded 24 scholarships providing a residential learning experience at Stanford University, one of the world’s leading educational institutions.
In the first year of this new collaboration, the series will bring four world-renowned Stanford University speakers to Australia, covering a variety of topics integrating business, health, science and the arts.
It also will host academic and not-for profit leadership workshops to increase the managerial capacity of the not-for-profit sector.
In addition to these opportunities, SAF will continue to offer not-for-profit leaders scholarships to attend Stanford.
SAF scholarships enable senior not-for-profit leaders to step out of the day-to-day and immerse themselves in a way of learning encouraging fresh thinking. They attend with a group of not-for-profit leaders from around the world, making connections and sharing ideas and experiences.
SAF scholarship alumni from the past decade recently gathered to reflect on the impact of the Stanford Executive Program (SEP) experience, with recipients confirming it was an inspiring and transformative experience. Further information about the speaker program will be provided near the end of 2018.
