SCHK DOUBLE FEATURE!!! THE Stanford Mendicants + Stanford Deans: Stanford’s Vision for the Future

Dan Schwartz, Dean of the School of Education & Lloyd Minor, Dean of the School of Medicine

Join the Stanford Club of HK for a very special Stanford evening, featuring a high energy performance by the Stanford Mendicants, Stanford’s original A Capella group. They will be singing the best songs of today, yesterday, and several decades ago.

The Mendicants will be immediately followed by a thought-provoking conversation with Dean Dan Schwartz and Dean Lloyd Minor discussing Stanford’s Vision for the Future.  In 2017, Stanford kicked off a long-range planning effort to identify and guide focus against challenges and areas of opportunity in the upcoming years. Nearly 3,000 ideas were submitted for consideration, and teams have spent hundreds of hours pouring over them.

Join us as we reminisce through music and learn about the future! Appetizers and drinks will also be served. Hope to see you there!
