Non-traditional from the time of its founding, Stanford’s first class of students in 1891 was fully coeducational. Today, 126 years later, we remain fully committed to Jane and Leland Stanford’s vision of education and research to render the greatest possible service to humankind. In this spirit, we are pleased to host the 2017 Rising Stars workshop, a gathering of some of the best and brightest women scientists in EE and CS who are interested in academic careers.
We look forward to learning about your research, interests and perspectives and sharing our academic career experiences with you. Enjoy your time at Stanford, and in the words of Stanford’s new president, Marc Tessier-Lavigne, “Let us be fearless.”
