Connecting with Leaders: Knowledge, Wisdom and Community Building

The wisdom of Distinguished Fellows.  Members of the Stanford Distinguished Fellows Institute will  offer the wisdom and insight gained from their highly successful careers and offer guidance to graduate students developing their own career paths.

The Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education and the Distinguished Careers Institute have partnered together to launch a series of leadership events for Stanford's graduate students. The Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute brings together established leaders from all walks of life who are eager to transform themselves for roles with social impact at the local, national, and global levels. They engage in personal reflection and intellectual exploration in the company of peers and form new and lasting communities and networks.

The Connecting Leaders events are designed to introduce and connect these Fellows with graduate students who wish to learn from these proven leaders. Each event will consist of a panel presentation followed by a reception to enable students to hear from distinguished leader fellows and the opportunity to personally network with them.
