Mitchell is the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University, the Mary and Gordon Crary Family Professor in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, co-director of the Stanford Computer Security Lab, and Professor (by courtesy) of Education.WEB,weblink Report of the President: Academic Council Professoriate appointments, October 14, 2013, Stanford University, WEB,weblink Stanford takes landmark step in online learning, appoints new vice provost, August 30, 2012, Stanford University, He is a member of the steering committee for Stanford University's Cyber Initiative. Mitchell has been Vice Provost at Stanford University since 2012, first as the inaugural Vice Provost for Online Learning and now in a broader role for Teaching and Learning. Under Mitchell's direction, the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL) is advancing teaching and learning through faculty-driven initiatives and research, transforming education in Stanford's classrooms and beyond.Mitchell's first research project in online learning started in 2009 when he and six undergraduate students built Stanford CourseWare, an innovative platform that expanded to support interactive video and discussion. CourseWare served as the foundation for initial flipped classroom experiments at Stanford and helped inspire the first massive open online courses (MOOCs) from Stanford that captured worldwide attention in 2011.The Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning was as established in August 2012, after Mitchell served as John L. Hennessy's — Stanford University's 10th President — special assistant for educational technology and chaired a faculty committee that established initial priorities for Stanford and developed intellectual property guidelines for publicly released online courses.To help build faculty experience and a catalogue of online material, Vice Provost Mitchell launched a faculty seed grant program in Summer 2012.WEB,weblink Stanford faculty is embracing online teaching opportunities, July 17, 2012, October 28, 2014, Stanford News, Stanford University, This program has helped faculty across campus transform their Stanford campus courses and release public courses to the world, generating informed discussion and debate among faculty in the process.WEB,weblink Seed grants enable new online courses for Stanford students, January 14, 2013, October 28, 2014, Stanford News, Stanford University, WEB,weblink Stanford seed grants for online learning highlight international collaboration, June 25, 2013, Stanford News, Stanford University, WEB,weblink Six seed grants awarded Spring 2014, September 3, 2014, Stanford Online, Stanford University, WEB,weblink New Seed Grant Program Announced for the 2014-2015 Academic Year, October 27, 2014, Stanford Online, Stanford University, In addition to supporting delivery of digital course content, the VPTL engineering team is working to expand the features of Lagunita, Stanford's instance of the open-source release of the edX platform.

He has served on the editorial board of ten academic journals, acted as consultant and advisor to numerous companies, and spent sabbaticals at the Newton Institute for Mathematical Science and Coverity, Inc.

Research

Together with Gordon Plotkin he noted the connection between existential types and abstract data types.JOURNAL, Mitchell, J. C., John C. Mitchell, Plotkin, G. D., Gordon Plotkin, 10.1145/44501.45065, Abstract types have existential type, ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems, 10, 3, 470, 1988, Mitchell's early computer science research focused on programming analysis and design, where he played a pivotal role in developing type theory as a foundation for programming languages, a view that is now dominant in the field. For the past 15 years, his research has focused on computer security, developing analysis methods and improving network protocol security, authorization and access control, web security, and privacy.Mitchell has been at the forefront of Web and network security research and education for more than a decade and has helped train thousands of students in programming languages and hundreds of expert-level professionals in the area of cyber-security. His efforts have resulted in the development of concepts used in the popular Java programming language, improved the security of widely used wireless networking protocols, contributed to the security architecture of the Chrome browser and other components of the modern web.In August 2012, Mitchell was appointed by Stanford President John L. Hennessy as the Vice Provost for Online Learning, a newly created position responsible for overseeing Stanford's online learning initiatives.
