The Annual Staff Recognition Program has been a long-standing tradition to honor staff whose work and dedication have helped make Stanford the great institution that it is today. Without their contributions, the advances of faculty, researchers and students—across all of the school's missions—would not be possible. The reception was on Thursday, April 22, 2010 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m, at the new Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge.
