The Research Operations team supports internal Research Hub operations as well as customized publications and website development for Research Hub Labs and Initiatives and other clients.
The Research Operations team supports internal Research Hub needs for budget management and HR, while serving as a liaison with GSB Finance and HR departments. Labs and Initiatives rely on the Operations team for budget support, hiring assistance, general administrative support and coordination.
The Research Communications team provides support to the Research Hub Labs and Initiatives and other Hub units in a number of areas, primarily web design, content review, and content dissemination. Unlike the GSB central Communications group, which actively markets the GSB to the world, the Research Hub Communications team has a focus on research dissemination in response to faculty requests. The team assists with content production by consulting on content strategy and presentation—while the units they support are the ultimate content owners.
The team provides design services for marketing materials associated with Research Hub events. Their services include: photo editing; graphic design for documents, graphs, and charts; guidance on style, voice, and tone; adapting existing PowerPoint and Google Slides templates; and ensuring that all websites align with accessibility requirements and Stanford branding. They contract and manage editorial, copywriting, and design freelancers.
As part of a larger Web/UX group drawing from other Research Hub units, the Research Communications team develops and maintains websites for the Research Hub and several of the Labs and Initiatives. They can also provide analytics dashboards related to web page use.
