Connecting with Stanford in Seoul
Early last week I had the opportunity to attend #Stanfordconnects in Seoul. There were about 250 alumni in attendance from a range of Stanford departments. It was a very informative evening, including a talk by outgoing (as of September 1) Stanford President John Hennessy. His presentation was the highlight of the evening for me, but most especially because of his remarks about the new Knight-Hennessy Scholars program. That program's global scope and its focus on service, collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship promise to contribute greatly not only to Stanford but to solutions for some of the world's most pressing problems. I am inspired by the commitment it represents and its close relationship to the vision and mission of SUNY Korea and the Incheon Global Campus here in Songdo.
