In 2019, Stanford opened the doors of a state-of-the-art hospital, a campus in Redwood City, a research complex dedicated to improving human health and a renovated amphitheater. Three campus landmarks were also renamed in honor of three inspirational women, university co-founder Jane Stanford, astronaut and alum Sally Ride and pioneer in Native American health Carolyn Lewis Attneave, MA ’47, PhD ’52. Meanwhile, scientists made discoveries about brains, bots and heartbeats and scholars proposed new ways to understand social and economic problems. The year also saw two students named Rhodes Scholars, among other academic and athletic accomplishments. Here’s a roundup of those and other highlights from the year.
