Professor Hank Greely is featured in this Stanford University News article detailing how he has been honored with the 2012 Richard W. Lyman Award recognizing his efforts in Stanford Alumni Association programming and Stewardship. 

Hank Greely, a law professor and Stanford alumnus, is recipient of the 2012 Richard W. Lyman Award for his volunteer efforts to keep alumni connected to the university wherever they are.

The Lyman Award is presented annually by the Stanford Alumni Association to a faculty member who has gone "above and beyond" to engage alumni through volunteer activities that further the SAA's goal of lifelong learning.

Since 1991, Greely, '74, has delivered talks for alumni groups, including participating in Classes Without Quizzes during Reunion Homecoming and speaking on numerous panels for Stanford student and alumni audiences. He also is an avid Cardinal sports fan.

Greely, the Deane F. and Kate Edelman Johnson Professor of Law, will receive the award during an invitation-only event hosted by the SAA this afternoon. The event also will recognize all faculty who volunteer their time to alumni engagement.


Recent Lyman Award winners include Lyman Van Slyke, professor emeritus of history; Al Camarillo, professor of history and special assistant to the provost for faculty diversity; Rob Dunbar, professor in the School of Earth Sciences and director of the Earth Systems Program; and Barton "Buzz" Thompson, professor of law and a faculty director of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment.
