Introducing the New (and Improved!) SUPAD

With the wealth of administrative information available online, it can be hard to navigate the Stanford websphere to find just the tools and resources you need.

Enter the Stanford University Personal Administrative Desktop (SUPAD).

Originally created some 15 years back, SUPAD provides a customizable online gateway to important administrative websites and applications. With SUPAD, University staff can easily bookmark important administrative and personal websites for later reference from any browser.

The tool was redesigned last fall to provide a fresh, modern look that is mobile responsive and more straightforward for users. As part of the redesign, SUPAD was migrated to LifeRay (the platform powering the current Axess portal), and the overall look and feel were updated to reflect current Stanford branding.  University IT also updated the collection of Stanford administrative links available within SUPAD.
