Stanford Alumni Association recognizes students for service to the university
Every year, the Stanford Alumni Association recognizes Stanford students for their service and contributions to the campus community.
Among them this year is graduating senior JANET COLEMAN-BELIN, recipient of the year’s Outstanding Achievement Award. She won the award for making a significant impact on the campus community through undergraduate activities and for demonstrating a strong potential for continued service to the university and alumni community.
“Janet is energized and fortified by her roles and communities, affording vibrant contribution in a number of organizations and spaces on campus,” said one of her nominators. Coleman-Belin, who served as a Rinconada resident assistant, a co-chair of the student advisory group for the vice provost for undergraduate education, a former class co-president and a teaching assistant for the class Dare to Care, also was a finalist for the J.E. Wallace Sterling Award, won by IAN MACATO.
Coleman-Belin is also one of 172 graduating seniors who have received the Class of 2019 Award for Excellence. The award recognizes graduating seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to the university through involvement, leadership and Stanford spirit. About 10 percent of the class receive this honor.

Thirty-five graduate students were named winners of the 2019 Graduate Student Community Impact Award. The award recognizes graduate students who have fostered a sense of enthusiasm and belonging among fellow graduate students and enhanced the Stanford community through leadership of a student organization, creation of an event or program or other campus contributions. These include programs that support first-generation college students, women in STEM fields, mentorship initiatives and initiatives that support first-generation and low-income students.
Faculty and staff nominated the graduate student winners, who included students in law, medicine, education, engineering, business, and humanities and social sciences. See the full list of recipients.
