Research universities play an important dual role in society: to find new solutions through research, and to educate strong leaders to contribute to and implement these creative solutions. To help meet this mission, Stanford University is launching a new graduate program, "Knight-Hennessy Scholars." Named after John L. Hennessy, Stanford University’s 10th president, this major new commitment will teach graduate scholars "to lead complex organizations and to navigate across business, government, academia, and the nonprofit sector to develop scalable solutions." Scholars will be free to pursue any graduate degree or combination of degrees in any of the seven schools across the university, including PhD, JD, MBA, MS, MA and MD programs. In the fall of 2018, Stanford will convene an inaugural class of 50 Knight-Hennessy Scholars, expanding to 100 scholars by fall of 2019, with approximately 65 percent of participants expected to come from outside the United States.
