Stanford will welcome prospective graduate students to campus for Graduate Recruitment and Diversity Day, an annual event designed to help recruit outstanding scholars who would contribute to the diversity of their academic fields.
The winners of the individual awards are Ben Barres, a professor at Stanford Medicine, and James Jordan, a senior manager at the Stanford Alumni Association. The winner of the program award is the Diversity and First-Gen Office.
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.
The winner of the individual award is Sally Dickson, an emerita staff member who is serving as a special assistant to President John Hennessy. The winner of the program award is the Office of Multicultural Affairs within the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences.
