    Biographical / Historical

    Kennedy, holder of three degrees from Harvard, joined Stanford's biology faculty in 1960; while on leave from 1977 to 1979 he served in Washington, D.C., as commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. Kennedy was Stanford's eighth president, serving from 1980 to 1992. Prior to taking office he was vice president and provost under his predecessor Richard W. Lyman. During his presidency, Stanford celebrated its centennial and its full emergence as a world-class university. Kennedy was at the forefront of the university's student public service initiative and efforts to renew faculty commitment to teaching. His term in office also included the university's disagreement with the federal government over reimbursement for the indirect costs of research.
