"The Wall Street Journal" quotes Professor Joseph Grundfest, in a story about the establishment of the Rock Center for Corporate Governance, a joint initiative of Stanford Law School and the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

"We don't want to be just an academic center," Mr. Grundfest said in an interview. "We also want to help improve the quality of corporate governance in the real world." He added that Stanford's law school has been active in the area since 1993, when it launched a program called Directors College to help educate corporate-board members.
