Core Representatives

Main content start

TIPS Core Representatives are individuals who are deeply committed to Stanford and both know and care about Stanford processes. A Core Representative must be able to tap individuals within their organization who can contribute to discussions when vertical expertise or a local perspective is useful. Core Representatives are expected to reflect the needs of their respective group and to relay results and options back to their sponsoring organization.

For FY24 Core Representatives are working towards enhancing to support productivity in general categories of: administration, research, finance, academics, human resources, and technology.

Core Representative meetings are being scheduled for FY24 to address initiative, so please feel free to share any feedback or ideas via email which you believe can contribute towards our daily productivity cycles at Stanford University.
