Board of Trustees accepts Kennedy resignation

STANFORD -- The Stanford University Board of Trustees issued the following statement Monday, July 29, in accepting President Donald Kennedy's resignation, effective August 1992.

The Board of Trustees respects and accepts with regret Don Kennedy's decision to leave the Presidency and return to teaching research and policy analysis at Stanford at the end of the next academic year.

In accepting that decision, we recognize the extraordinary contributions which Don has made during his thirty years of service to Stanford, particularly his vision and intellectual leadership during the last decade as President.

We appreciate Don's willingness to devote the next academic year to completing the reforms and financial restructuring so essential to Stanford's future well-being. The Board is deeply involved in that endeavor, and Don will have our full support as he leads Stanford through this difficult period.

We want finally to express our admiration for his courageous decision to do, as he has always done, what is best for Stanford.
