Stanford’s 2021 Commencement ceremonies in June will feature speeches to undergraduates by creator and actress Issa Rae and to advanced degree recipients by public health leader and writer Atul Gawande, MD, MPH. Both are alumni of the university.
Three members of the faculty, two members of the staff and three students, including a bachelor’s, master’s and PhD candidate, will receive awards on Sunday, June 18, at the 126th Commencement ceremony in Stanford Stadium.
Stanford students have a tradition of welcoming first-year students on move-in day by memorizing their names and calling them out when new students arrive at their dorms. A new service uses technology to build on that tradition.
