I'm Garth Saloner,
I'm the ninth Dean of the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.
I'm delighted to be with you here today.
This is an annual opportunity for me to talk to you a little bit about what's been
going on at the school over the last year, and where we're headed.
One of the great things about Stanford is that it is an immersive experience.
>> It's the experiential aspect that I think creates learnings that we
can sort of take to the real world.
>> One of the things that we remain extremely proud of at
the GSB is the diversity of our student body.
More than 40% of our students are non-US passport holders.
Around 35 to 40% of our students each year are women.
We believe that having a diverse student body provides the backgrounds and
experiences that allows all of the students to learn from and
challenge one another.
>> The diversity here has been a, it's definitely a value added.
>> When we built the night management center, we were able to build it right
across the road from the preexisting Schwab Residential Facility, and
what we've learned from doing that,
is that we have created a just marvelous learning building environment.
So we have started the process of adding a second residential facility that will
sit alongside Schwab.
It will have the same look and feel that Schwab has.
Very much Stanford on the outside, but
with these beautiful vibrant colors on the inside.

>> If you increase price by one unit, quantity goes down.
>> One of the amazing things about the GSV,
is the rate of innovation in our elective curriculum.
This coming year we will have 150 electives,
about 28% of those electives are gonna be brand new electives this year.
>> Stanford really encourages you to set your own course.
And you're supported in that with people who really know what your interests are.
>> It's kind of an all you can eat buffet of opportunities at Stanford.
>> All of this activity that I'm talking about, of course,
requires additional faculty resources.
So the faculty has grown to about 117 today from around 102 in 2009.
As we do this, we go slowly making sure that we add faculty of the quality
that all of you remember from your time at the GSB.
We've made a very significant investment in educational technology,
in order to prepare ourselves for the kinds of innovations that we
know we're going to want to make over the next few years.
We have built a set of studios that allow us to create very high level content.
>> So you can see this pattern played out repeatedly in this chart.
>> One of the most important ways in which we're applying it in
the short term is actually for our own students.
>> I think the reason I liked it so much was I could rewind, I could fast forward,
I could print out transcripts and take them with me, wherever I wanted to go.
>> You are able to learn at your own pace, pick up that information.
And then now you're incorporating it in real time with other people.
>> One of the things which I think we've really learned how to do in the last
couple of years, is how to beam our faculty out of
the night management center into facilities abroad in a way that
appears essentially seamless to the students in those facilities.
>> First of all, hello Californians.
>> We were incredibly honored, in March, when the First Lady, Michelle Obama,
on her trip to Beijing, used the highly immersive classroom to connect a group of
students in China with a group of students here at Stanford University.
Technology, when it's done well, makes geography disappear.
[MUSIC]
Stanford Ignite is the program that we've been using to really extend our
reach internationally.
We took it successfully to India and France last year.
And this year we're adding Chile and China with a program at our center in Beijing.
We also offered a version of the program for special forces veterans who
are transitioning from the special forces to civilian life.
One of the advances we made within executive education in
the last few years is developing custom programs where we
have a very tight engagement with senior management at very significant companies.
We broadened that this summer to Intel and General Motors and
those are examples that we're looking forward to replicating in other cases.
We've established a hub and a [UNKNOWN] for
seed, which is the Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies, and
we're expanding on the work that we've been doing there.
We're working with companies that we believe have the potential to scale to
provide employment and resources for their communities.
And through that, to lift their communities out of poverty.
This year we've augmented the SEED's activities by creating what we
call the Global Development Program, which is a university-wide research program that
SEED developed in conjunction with the Freeman Spogli Institute.
And this year we were able to reward grants of $4.6 million to
support that work.
[APPLAUSE].
>> Have a good weekend.
See you Tuesday.
>> This year two icons of entrepreneurship at the GSB, Chuck Holloway and
Irv Groesbeck, stepped down from their roles as faculty co-directors of
the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.
They have created what is without doubt the premier center for
entrepreneurial studies of its kind in the world, and the lead that the GSB has
in this domain is very much thanks to the efforts of Chuck and Irv.
We would not be able to do any of these large number of things that I
have spoken to you about today without your involvement,
without your advice without your support and, and for all of that, I thank you.
