Stanford Web Services provides the Stanford community a full range of Drupal website planning, design, development, and maintenance support at well below market rates.
While assistance is available for web projects of any scale and nature, the core services are designed to be most attractive to departments and official groups that choose to benefit from the university’s best design ideas (both shared and original) and its most efficient, centrally-funded infrastructure tools. Services include:
- design, development, and production services;
- oversight of university web branding, including web themes and style guidelines; and
- project consultation and guidance on vendor relationships.
Tiers of service
Stanford Web Services offers three types of services. Stanford Sites Jumpstart (formerly Basic Site) and Stanford Sites Custom (formerly Basic Site Plus) services deliver Stanford-branded, mobile responsive websites built exclusively on the dedicated Stanford Sites web hosting infrastructure. Web Project Strategy and Vendor Guidance offers expert consultation from discovery through vendor selection for Stanford departments working with external vendors.
Stanford Sites Jumpstart: Simple and Plus
Stanford Web Services can create a simple Stanford-branded, mobile responsive website in Drupal 7 for those departments or groups requiring fast turnaround, simple content management, and minimal support. Sites are hosted on Stanford Sites. New in 2014-15: Jumpstart Plus includes dynamic features for news and events. Learn more about Stanford Sites Jumpstart.
Stanford Sites Custom
Stanford Web Services can create a sophisticated Stanford-branded, mobile responsive website in Drupal 7 for those departments or groups requiring custom functionality, unique themes, and more support. Sites are hosted on Stanford Sites.
Web Project Strategy and Vendor Guidance
This service supports departments and groups with more expansive needs or requirements, such as ecommerce capability or dedicated hosting. Stanford Web Services will help you to identify project requirements, lend information architecture and content strategy expertise, and identify solutions — including finding and guiding external vendors from the search process through project completion.
