2012 Richard W. Lyman Award Winner
Deane F. and Kate Edelman Johnson Professor of Law
Hank Greely, '74, has a long history of speaking to alumni on behalf of the Stanford Alumni Association. Going back as far as 1991, Hank has gone out of his way to speak in some of our smallest and largest alumni markets, delivering engaging talks at Classes Without Quizzes and speaking on various panels.
Hank is a faculty member that goes above and beyond to work with colleagues across the university. He is the consummate professional and his dedication and willingness to help is always incredible. Whether or not he's trying to schedule an event right after teaching or before a Stanford soccer or football game (he's a huge Stanford sports fan!) Hank always goes out of his way to make a speaking event work, even if that means he's taking a difficult flight or moving his schedule around.
About the Richard W. Lyman Award
The Richard W. Lyman Award was established in 1983 in President Emeritus Richard Lyman's honor. The Award recognizes one outstanding faculty member whose involvement in Stanford Alumni Association programming and University stewardship over time are truly "above and beyond." Faculty members considered for the award generously donate time to alumni, go beyond the expectations of University appointments and embody the mission of Stanford Alumni Association.
The award provides funds for additions to the permanent collections of the Stanford University Libraries in areas of special interest to the recipient and is presented at the annual faculty appreciation event at "A Toast to Faculty and Lyman Award."
