Stanford University Ends a $1.7M Contract with a Russian Entity

IBL News | New York

Stanford University announced that it is ending what appears to be one of the last remaining active Russian contracts among colleges in the U.S.

It’s a $1.7 million, three-year agreement with an unidentified Russian entity for “online access to business-related professional development courses.”

Dee Mostofi, Stanford’s Assistant Vice President for External Communications, ensured that the institution was “in full compliance with U.S. sanctions.”

“Stanford is in the process of ending an agreement that provides online access to business-related professional development courses through a licensee,” he explained while refusing to provide further details regarding this contract.

Other universities, like MIT, the University of Colorado, and Arizona State University, among others, have also cut student, research, and financial ties from Russia.
