Stanford University has reportedly signed a lease just south of Madison Square Park at 915 Broadway in the Flatiron District for their upcoming “Stanford in New York” pilot program. The program allows 20 undergraduate students to live, study and do an internship right in the heart of the city.
Stanford is based in Palo Alto in the San Francisco Bay Area, so this allows students to expand their life and work experience to the East Coast’s largest city and do internships in “arts, design, architecture and urban studies”
“The new Stanford in New York program presents our students with distinctive opportunities for dynamic engagement with the global city of New York,” said Harry J. Elam, vice provost for undergraduate education. “Through an intensive quarter of study, reflective practice and experiential learning in the unique environment that is New York, students will hone their intellectual skills and capacities, develop their abilities as adaptive learners and fortify their creative confidence.”
The program is set to start this fall and last one academic quarter.
