She begins Oct. 1. Seelig also will maintain her current roles at STVP and MS&E.

The Knight-Hennessy Scholars program, headquartered in Denning House, offers graduate-level fellowships designed to develop a multidisciplinary, multicultural community of future global leaders to address the world’s most complex challenges. Scholars participate in an experiential leadership program known as the King Global Leadership Program and receive funding for their Stanford graduate education.

“I am thrilled to be invited to contribute to the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program, and am particularly excited about the opportunity to create bridges between KHS, the university and the broader community, building on what I have learned at STVP and MS&E over the past 21 years,” Seelig said.

One of Seelig’s roles at the Knight-Hennessy Scholars program will be to craft and deliver programming for the King Global Leadership Program – accelerating leadership skills within the Knight-Hennessy Scholars community and beyond.
