Zale Lecture and Award
The Morris B. and Edna Zale Lectureship was established in 1980 and seeks to bring policy leaders from a broad spectrum of public and private sectors for a lecture open to the Stanford community. In addition to the lecture, the Public Policy Program honors the selected speaker with the Zale Award for Public Service.
The lecture and award ceremony are typically held each year in the Spring quarter with a special luncheon. A Public Policy graduate student is chosen to introduce the award recipient and present them with a personalized plaque.
