Christine Rogers: Stanford's budget and what it means for us

The budget of Stanford exceeds the budget of many countries (at least 40) in the world. Insane right?
The vast budget of Stanford, a result of a substantial endowment combined with staggeringly huge major gifts, allows Stanford to do amazing things. From building, maintaining, and expanding a beautiful and state-of-the-art campus, to funding numerous and diverse programs to benefit undergraduate education (such as Sophomore College and overseas programs), to promoting the arts (via the new Arts District, including Bing Concert Hall and Cantor Arts Museum, that is currently underway), Stanford’s monetary capabilities have enabled the great people at Stanford to create a university that does justice to the visions and dreams of Leland and Jane.
