Stanford president John Hennessey makes his final overseas stop of the global event tour, the Stanford+Connects Tour, in Shanghai, meeting and speaking with more than 300 alumni and friends at the Pudong Shangri-la Hotel on March 12, 2016.

This Shanghai event, like others in the Stanford+Connects series, brought some of the very best of Stanford to speak and share ideas with alumni, who came to Shanghai from all over Asia Pacific.

Three Stanford deans, Persis Drell of the School of Engineering, Garth Saloner of the Graduate School of Business, and M. Elizabeth Magill of the Law School, took part in panel discussions with the Stanford+Connects audience about instilling entrepreneurship at each school, and how innovation and creativity are taught and pursued at higher education.

Bill Newsome, Monica Lam, Mike McFaul, Josh Freedman, and J. Christian Gerdes gave micro-lectures at the event.  Many Stanford Connectors, especially board members of Stanford Club of Shanghai, contributed to the event.

Summer course at HIMB

I had a blast with my marine biology class at the Hawai’i Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB), a world-renowned research institute at the University of Hawai’i (UH) at Manoa, this summer.

Located on Moku o Lo’e (Coconut Island) in Kane‘ohe Bay, HIMB is the only marine research facilities that are built on a coral reef and an island by itself.  It provides excellent research and learning opportunities located just 15 miles from the main UH campus and downtown Honolulu.

I took this marine science summer course in July, 2015 at HIMB on Coconut Island. It’s a one week course, with a class of 20 high school students. If interested in more, please view my video.

Wonderful experience!
