  • 2020 Stanford Facts: University Communications is accepting orders from university schools, departments and related programs for the Stanford Facts book. You need a department PTA number to pay for and process the order. Stanford Facts is a convenient, pocket-sized university resource that provides a summary of Stanford and includes facts and figures about the campus community. It's useful as a welcome to new employees or to introduce the university to visitors and associates. Campus units can order here through Jan. 10
