Honoring alumni: Working together to improve education

The preparation our students receive during their time at Stanford leads — collectively, through their careers— to better solutions for today’s biggest educational challenges. We are committed to building a strong alumni community so that we can help support their efforts.

This issue of the "Educator" features several stories and class notes that provide a glimpse of the impact our graduates are having. To raise even greater awareness of their work, we will give our first Alumni Excellence in Education Awards in the fall.  READ THE FULL DEAN'S NOTE
