Stanford using Drupal

I've been around the web long enough to know a good-looking site when I see one -- http://shc.stanford.edu is a good looking site. It is the home page of the Stanford Humanities Center, and it uses Drupal.

And there is more. A quick glance at https://techcommons.stanford.edu/topics/drupal/sites-using-drupal-stanford reveals a list of over fifty Drupal sites currently active at Stanford. As far as I saw on the ones I clicked on, each site is different.

This trend isn't specific to Stanford. We see it at MIT, Harvard and many other universities. More and more universities start to embrace Drupal. At many of those, Drupal is slowly becoming the de facto platform for web development. It is an emerging trend, and one that introduces a lot of students to Drupal.

Thanks for noticing Dries! Drupal has certainly been taking off here at SU for the last couple years, and the pace is only increasing.

We have buy-in from our central IT organization, who has devised a rather impressive Drupal installer/updater; beginning, intermediate, and advanced Drupal training courses; our own homegrown SSO WebAuth module; an internal listserv with 150+ subscribers; you already noticed TechCommons, which has 60 reference articles devoted to Drupal; and most importantly a vibrant, collegial and supportive user base.

All that together with DrupalConSF in 2010 ... it's a very exciting time to be involved with Drupal.
