Kati Velcheva selected as a Ric Weiland Graduate Fellow in the Humanities & Sciences
  Congratulations to Kati Velcheva who has been selected as a Ric Weiland Graduate Fellow in the Humanities & Sciences. These awards are made to outstanding doctoral candidates in the humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and statistics. Weiland Fellows receive grants for field work, conference travel, books, and other research needs. In addition, semiannual gatherings bring together Weiland-supported faculty and students across campus. These fellowships are made possible by the generosity of one of Stanford’s very distinguished alums: the late Ric Weiland.

Professor Richard Taylor appointed to a Distinguished Professorship
  Stanford Mathematics Professor Richard Taylor was appointed as the new Barbara Kimball Browning Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences. An endowed chair is the highest honor the university can bestow upon a faculty member. Professor Taylor recently joined the Mathematics Department in July 2018. He is a leader in the field of number theory, specifically Galois representations, automorphic forms, and Shimura variations. Professor Taylor and his collaborators have been instrumental in developing powerful new techniques for use in solving longstanding problems in the discipline.


Stanford University, sponsored by Continuing Studies, is hosting this year’s A Celebration of Mind event on October 20 at 7:30pm at the CEMEX Auditorium.
