Condoleezza Rice to lead Stanford’s Hoover Institution

Leadership Instincts

Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne announced that former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, currently the Denning Professor in Global Business at the Graduate School of Business and the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on public policy at the Hoover Institution, and a former Stanford provost, will be Hoover’s next director.

Rice will assume her post as the Tad and Dianne Taube Director of the Hoover Institution on Sept. 1. She will succeed Thomas Gilligan, who has served as director for five years and announced his departure in 2019.

Rice was the 66th secretary of state of the United States, the second woman and first African American woman to hold the post. She also served as President George W. Bush’s national security advisor. Rice joined Stanford University in 1981, where she served as provost from 1993 to 1999 and has been a Hoover Institution senior fellow since 1991. During her tenure at the university, she has won two of its highest teaching honors: the Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching and the School of Humanities and Sciences Dean’s Award for Distinguished Teaching.

The Hoover Institution at Stanford University is the nation’s preeminent research center dedicated to generating policy ideas that promote economic prosperity, national security and democratic governance. It is the only such institution composed of both a fellowship of scholars and a world-renowned Library & Archives. Over its 100-year history, Hoover scholars have created innovative ideas enacted for the betterment of humanity and have contributed to the translation of those ideas into the implementation of public policy.
