Dear reunion year alum,
On behalf of all of us at the Stanford Alumni Association, I want to express our deep disappointment that we are not welcoming you back to campus for your reunion this year. I know you understand—how can you not?—but we do miss you and hope you are finding ways to connect with each other until we can meet again.
Planning for Reunion Homecoming 2021, to which you all are invited, is underway with the sincere hope that the campus can accommodate such an event next fall. Rest assured that we will work toward an event that is full of Stanford energy and spirit, but also safe and healthy for all of our reunion-year alumni and staff. Look out for updates from us as plans take shape.
In the meantime, I want to take a moment to recognize our many Reunion Homecoming volunteers who not only provided invaluable guidance and support, but also faced the uncertainty and disruption with patience and aplomb. Alumni volunteers are a key ingredient in the “secret sauce” that makes Stanford so very special; your RH 2020 volunteers deserve many thanks.
When the pandemic is behind us, I hope we will emerge with fresh perspectives and a boundless appreciation for the people around us—including our Stanford classmates and friends—who mean so much. We may be physically apart, but I know the spirit of this global community of alumni remains connected and strong.
I send you all my best from this special place between the foothills and the bay where the Stanford spirit was born in so many of us. And I very much hope that you and yours all stay safe, healthy and well during these unprecedented times.
Howard E. Wolf, ‘80
Vice President for Alumni Affairs, Stanford University and
President, Stanford Alumni Association
