After watching Tiger’s press conference yesterday–when he finally seemed to be emerging from his shell and showing off the same smile that captivated audiences while he fist-pumped his way to victory after victory earlier in his career–I got to thinking: when will Stanford turn out the next superstar?
Stanford University spent $420,000 on lobbying in 2011, according to the quarterly lobbying reports filed by Larry Horton ’62 ’66 M.A., director of government and community relations at Stanford.
Stanford’s second iDeclare week, an event series designed to assist sophomores with the process of declaring a major, took place last week from Jan. 23to Jan. 27.
Portuguese President Aníbal António Cavaco Silva met with University President John Hennessy during his visit to Stanford Monday, as part of the first trip by a Portuguese president to Silicon Valley in two decades.
More than 40 percent of residents in the Bay Area’s five poorest neighborhoods live below the poverty line, according to a recent study by the Brookings Institution.
The Faculty Senate heard reports on graduate education and undergraduate advising Thursday, as well as some surprising news from University President John Hennessy
Upon the conclusion of the presentations of President John Hennessy and Professor Bernd Girod on October 13 to the Faculty Senate on the proposed New York City applied sciences and engineering campus, there were at least 15 faculty comments — almost entirely from professors in the School of Humanities and Sciences — regarding the proposed campus.
I’ve always cheered for Stanford. Consider me as being part of the “Red Zone” of Stanford life in general. I love this institution, so I’ve always trusted its decisions in the past — whether academic, athletic or administrative. Yet it is precisely because I love Stanford that I find myself cheering against it for the first time in my academic career.
Yesterday, Stanford submitted its proposal to the New York City Economic Development Corporation to build StanfordNYC, a $2.5 billion campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City. Let me say that again: $2.5 billion. That is more than double the initial estimate Stanford put forth a few weeks ago. Stanford wants to spend the equivalent of 15 percent of its endowment on a New York campus designed to “become a hub of technological innovation and entrepreneurship in the United States.” I don’t know if President Hennessy has checked recently, but we seem to already have that goal firmly established in the 94305 ZIP code.
