Stanford Today: News you need, in one place

University Human Resources, which produces the Cardinal at Work website and newsletter, is among the administrative units contributing to the online news hub.    

Throughout 2020, University HR was one of several dozen units to work with University Communications to improve the way we share information across the university. A product of that work launched on Dec. 3the new “Stanford Today” website (

The work was informed by the results of a broad community survey completed in February, and then by the seismic shift in the way we work and teach at Stanford with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The growing need to feel connected and informed, especially while distributed, further reinforced what many of you suggested in the survey: please consolidate information. 

Stanford Today is one way to accomplish that as it aims to serve as the primary channel for employee news, aggregating content from the Cardinal at Work website and other useful websites that provide you with important information. This internal news feed is organized by audience, recognizing that faculty readers and staff readers prioritize content differently.

The Cardinal at Work website will continue to provide information on University HR’s programs, benefits and more, and the Cardinal at Work Insider monthly newsletter will help promote those programs, while directing readers to the news curated for you on Stanford Today.
