Nominations sought for freshman award

Acting President John Etchemendy is asking faculty and staff to nominate outstanding members of the current freshman class for the President's Awards for Academic Excellence in the Freshman Year.

"Stanford University strives to offer an undergraduate education unparalleled in its opportunities for students to engage their intellectual talents," Etchemendy said. "The President's Award for Academic Excellence in the Freshman Year acknowledges the most accomplished first-year students both to honor their work and to encourage future distinction. The faculty and staff who work closely with freshmen are uniquely positioned to identify for us the students who have demonstrated, with their coursework, great promise for advanced scholarship."

Nominations should be sent via email or mail to Laura Selznick, Academic Director, Undergraduate Advising and Research, 102 Lasuen House, 572 Mayfield Avenue, MC 8457, by July 20.
