New Board of Trustees chair addresses housing and hospital projects

On Tuesday, Stanford’s Board of Trustees met for the first time this academic year to discuss topics including a new graduate student housing project at Escondido Village and the recently-completed Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Leadership transitions were also a theme, with Jeff Raikes ’80 presenting on his preparations for his new position as chair of the board and University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne reporting on the long-range planning process launched under his leadership.
