Stanford Report, September 11, 2002

Fourteen perspectives on 9/11

In the year since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Stanford community has been affected in many different ways: emotionally, spiritually, logistically and financially, to name just a few. During that time, Stanford Report has covered the university's response to the attacks, campus incidents that included several bomb threats and anthrax hoaxes, and especially lectures and panels featuring faculty who are experts in such fields as terrorism and Middle East politics. Today, on the anniversary of the attacks, 14 members of the community from a wide variety of perspectives -- from President John Hennessy to an anonymous Iranian student -- speak about what the past year has taught them; how it has affected them, their offices and the university as a whole; and what it may mean for future years.
