Transnational Research

In an effort to foster the sharing of research across academic fields and national boundaries, SGS has created a Global Research Workshop program.



Community Outreach

SGS is committed to outreach to foster global competencies, promote equitable opportunities in global education, and share Stanford’s resources with students and educators in our community.

As we continue to bear witness to the tragic impacts of the conflict in Sudan, Stanford Global Studies urges everyone to support rescue efforts by donating to the Sudanese American Physicians Association's emergency relief efforts. Every act of kindness makes a difference in supporting the people of Sudan in their time of need and members of our Stanford community who are personally impacted by this crisis.
