The Stanford University International Outreach Program, a new program under the auspices of Stanford’s International Initiative, supports the extension and adaptation of Stanford educational content and teaching programs for collaborative partnerships with tertiary institutions in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. IOP’s approach is closely aligned with The Stanford Challenge, which seeks to make the university a partner in designing solutions to interdisciplinary global challenges.

Innovative teaching and learning approaches, multidisciplinary curriculums, appropriate uses of Information and Communication Technologies, in conjunction with building teaching capacity among partners provide the framework for directing IOP’s program activities.
