Stanford PACS is home to 8 different research programs led by faculty members that represent a number of different disciplines and have appointments across five of the seven schools at Stanford. Research programs cover a wide range of topics focused on solving social problems, ranging from the role of digital technology and platforms in democratic decision making to aiding philanthropists in achieving their objectives most effectively. Affiliated faculty and scholars teach courses and seminars for undergraduates, masters and Ph.D. students. Topics range from philanthropy and civil society to governance, policy, and more.
Additionally, Stanford PACS offers a number of PhD and postdoctoral fellowships to scholars across the social sciences, humanities, law, business, and engineering who are doing promising new research that will advance the study of civil society organizations and the role of philanthropy in promoting social change. Stanford PACS also hosts an annual Junior Scholars Forum that brings together researchers-including graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty-from leading universities around the world. It provides an opportunity for scholars working in the areas of civil society and the nonprofit sector to participate in a cross-disciplinary intellectual community with the goal of enhancing the quality and visibility of research in these fields.
In 2012 Stanford PACS launched its first international program in China with the aim to inform and connect academics and practitioners focused on the social impact sector in China. We host an annual conference each spring to explore topics related to philanthropy and social innovation and conduct China-focused research, provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to engage in cross-cultural exchange, and host learning expeditions to Stanford for Chinese philanthropists, foundation and nonprofit leaders. We work with the Leping Foundation to produce a Chinese language version of the Stanford Social Innovation Review and have partnered with the East Asia Library at Stanford University to host the first ever digital archive of Chinese NGOs. In 2016, Stanford PACS expanded its international footprint to Australia and India, and SSIR is currently being translated into 7 different languages.
